Opinion: Tom Hanks Will Release His Debut Novel Next Year

Daniella Cressman

Tom Hanks is one of the best—if not the best—actors of our time. His enormous typewriter collection has often been mentioned throughout his career, so it's no wonder that the man has a passion for the written word: he certainly understands the complexity of character development and appreciates a good story, considering his massive amount of experience and success as a leading man in winning movie after winning movie.

"Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks’ debut novel The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece will hit bookstores next May..." —Marisa Dellatto

Tom Hanks is such a talented storyteller that this novel will likely be a success. Believe it or not, this is actually his second book, although it is still his first novel: in 2017, the man published a collection of short stories.

Additionally, the novel is clearly inspired by a scenario he is intimately familiar with, which is almost always a good sign.

"The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece tells the story of the production of a superhero action film from the 1940s (when the comic it’s based on was drawn) to the present day. Three comic books that were created by Hanks and featured in the story will be included in the novel." Marisa Dellatto

It is often stated that failure is the stepping stone to success, and many stars fondly remember their journey to get to the point where they are today. It seems that Hanks is no different.

Unsurprisingly, the actor has garnered inspiration from the eccentricities, highs, and lows of the film industry.
