It’s a Forrest Gump reunion on Here.
Tom Hanks is reuniting with Robert Zemeckis and Eric Roth, who he previously worked with on Forrest Gump, in an adaptation of the graphic novel Here from writer Richard McGuire. The news was first revealed by Deadline with the outlet stating that studios and streamers are hot for the package, although no clear winner has been announced. As always with packages as hot as this, a deal will likely be made relatively soon.
Here was published in 2014 and centers its story in the corner of a single room, focusing on the many people who inhabit it over years, from between the years 500,957,406,073 BC and 2313 AD. McGuire’s Here is based on the legendary 1989 comic strip of the same name. The graphic novel is an expanded take on the original comic strip.
Zemeckis will direct the adaptation while Roth will pen the script.
