Tom Hanks writes first novel, says he has only made four great movies, says report

‘Every character in the book does something I've experienced while making a movie, as well as discovered a philosophy or learned an important lesson,’ Tom Hanks told People.

Tom Hanks, one of Hollywood’s finest actors, has written his first novel, ‘The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece’, which will be published next year in May. As per People, novel is ‘about the movie business and the making of a ‘colossal, star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film and the humble comic book that inspired it.’

According to a New York Post report, Tom Hanks, who has acted in over 80 films, believes that only four of his films were very decent despite having an illustrious career.

In an interview with People, Hanks revealed that the plot of the novel is based on his personal Hollywood experiences.

‘Every character in the book does something I've experienced while making a movie, as well as discovered a philosophy or learned an important lesson. Even the foolish moments are some kind of stunt I've pulled or mistake I've survived,’ Hanks told the outlet.

Hanks, who also wrote the successful 2017 collection of short tales Uncommon Type, told People that ‘movie-making is incredibly hard work over a very long period of time that comprises so many joyous moments smacked up against an equal amount of thoughts of consciousness.’

Tom Hanks won his first Academy Award for ‘Philadelphia’ in 1994, and the following year, he won another Oscar for his work in ‘Forrest Gump’.
