The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece
Academy Award-winning actor, prolific tweeter, and all-around hero Tom Hanks hits the road this spring on a tour in support of his new novel 'The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece'. This event will see Hanks talk live on stage about his love of the written word, and what inspired him to take up the pen himself.
With his most famous film roles being in the movies Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Toy Story 1,2,3 The Da Vinci Code, Big, Splash, Turner and Hooch (the first two of which he won Academy Awards for), Hanks is the third-biggest grossing actor in America, beloved across the world for his temerity and ability to switch between comedy and serious drama. In 2014, he even ventured into the world of app-building; his type facsimile app for iPhone, Hanx Writer, allowed users to use their smartphones as an actual typewriter, fast becoming the top-selling app on iTunes.
