Writer/director Sean McGinly has reached into his magic hat and pulled out not one Hanks, but two, to star in his next film. Oscar-winner Tom Hanks and his son Colin Hanks will play father and son (they are actors, after all) in The Great Buck Howard, scheduled to shoot later this year. McGinly, writer of such straight-to-video fare as Venemous and Scorned 2, will take a significant leap as he hopes to make box-office magic with the Hanks men. He'll be writing and directing Buck Howard, which tells the story of a hapless magician and his assistant, both struggling to ascend through the ranks of professional magic-makers. [More]
