First Trailer Released For Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks' Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close

Filed under: Film FlickersTom HanksSandra BullockPerezTVBookz

More like Extremely Loud and Incredibly Intense! Wow!

Check out the trailer (above) for Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry's upcoming film based on Jonathan Safran Foer's powerful novel.

We still can't believe that the kid in this film was discovered because of Jeopardy! Definitely seems like he'll be able to hold his own with co-stars Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

What do U think? Will this one live up to the book???

12-Year-Old Jeopardy Winner Gets Major Movie Role!

jeopardy winning kid gets lead role in movie

Congratulations, kid!

Jeopardy wiz kid Thomas Horn has been cast as the lead in director Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, based on Jonathan Safran Foer's novel.

Horn will star alongside Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, who will play the kid's parents.

As we reported back in August, the story revolves around an intellectual, nine-year old tambourine playing kid who searches for a lock to match a mysterious key that his father left behind after his death in the World Trade Center on September 11.

Should be inneresting to see how the kid does. If he's half as good at acting as he is at Jeopardy, we should be in for a great performance!

Thoughts???

We definitely would love to hang out on set during this shoot!

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock are slated to star alongside each another in an adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

The story revolves around an intellectual, nine-year old tambourine playing kid who searches for a lock to match a mysterious key that his father left behind after his death in the World Trade Center on September 11.

The boy’s parents will be played by Hanks and Bullock. Filmmakers are currently searching an actor to play the nine-year old boy.

Should be very inneresting to see how the Hanks/Bullock chemistry plays on-screen. We'll go in optimistically.

What do U think of the Hanks/Bullock combo?
