Meet the new Mr. Banks!
Colin Farrell has just signed on to play the real guy that inspired the fictional fun-hating father in the classic story of Mary Poppins.
The new Disney flick, Saving Mr. Banks, is about Walt Disney's 14-year battle to convince Australian author P.L. Travers to give him the rights to her book.
Tom Hanks has agreed to play Walt (CAN NOT wait to see that!), Emma Thompson was cast as Travers, and Farrell will be playing her father. (Probs in flashbacks.)
So far, they have an incredible cast!
It appears Disney and Mr. Hanks are trying to win themselves an other Oscar!
