Tom Hanks Becomes A Castaway

Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis, whose last collaboration resulted in a gold rush of Oscars and dollars with Forrest Gump, are planning a re-team early next year on The Castaways.

That's according to Variety's Dish column. The film is a contemporary version of the man-stranded-on-a-deserted-island story.

Hanks has been busy lately, having just finished You Have Mail with his Sleepless in Seattle co-star Meg Ryan, and a recent adaptation of Stephen King's The Green Mile.
