Vanity Fair publishes the first stage images of News Of The World, the film with Tom Hanks directed by Paul Greengrass and set in the Old West.
The first images of Tom Hanks in News of The World, which marks his second collaboration with Paul Greengrass after Captain Phillips. The role that our dear actor plays in the film is that of a great speaker, a larger than life man who travels around Texas telling what happens around the world. His name is Captain Jefferson Kidd and his goal is to make money, even if he also has the hope that those who cannot see beyond their nose can broaden their horizons through a dip in history and current events. However, we are in the past, precisely at the time of the American Civil War, as can also be understood from the photos and costumes worn by a Hanks bearded, sly and a little ruddy.
News of the World is based on the novel of the same name by Paulette Jiles and shows us Captain Jefferson Kidd struggling with a difficult task: to bring home a girl who was kidnapped and raised by a tribe of Native Americans who first killed her parents. It goes without saying that a very strong bond will be created between the two.
The release date of News of The World is still set for next December 25th. We look forward to the film with trepidation, both to enjoy another brilliant performance of Tom Hanks both to find out how Greengrass this time he looked to America, which is that of the Old West.
