Tom Hanks has taken a trip to space before in Ron Howard's 'Apollo 13'. He has also given voice to a spaceman toy named Buzz Lightyear in the 'Toy Story' franchise. But it seems like this isn't the end for Tom's journey into outer space.
Paramount Pictures have opted Mattel Toys' action figure 'Major Matt Mason' for a live-action movie adaptation. The role of the space-bound action figure is to be played by Tom Hanks. Akiva Goldsman will be penning a screenplay based on Micheal Chabon's short story.
The movie is said to be 'set on the moon, in the near future.' Tom Hanks is currently busy promoting 'A Beautiful Day in The Neighbourhood' in which he plays Fred Rogers. He will also be seen in the upcoming war film 'Greyhound' and sci-fi movie 'BIOS.'
