Tom Hanks to star in The Polar Express.

cover Hairboy dropped me a note to let me know that one of my favorite Christmas stories is being made into a feature film. The Polar Express is a children’s book that tells the story of one young boy’s opportunity to visit Santa’s workshop at the North Pole. It’s a wonderful story, but still somewhat on the short side so I’m left wondering how well it can be adapted to film. I guess I’ll find out in 2004 when the film will hit theaters with Tom Hanks playing the Conductor according to this article at Cinescape.

  1. Have to add it to the list of “MOVIES TO SEE” and prioritize it appropriately below The Two Towers and The Chamber of Secrets… along with a few others…

  2. About time they did this one; Hanks optioned it over two years ago (I used to play the Hollywood Stock Exchange, and this was a film I optioned then).
