'Forrest Gump' Star Tom Hanks Out Of 'Fahrenheit'


Tom Hanks


The Academy Award-winning actor for his portrayal of intelligently challenged young man in 'Forrest Gump' has been reported to quit from the Frank Darabont's 'Fahrenheit 451'.

The two-time Academy Award's best actor recipient for his roles in "Philadelphia" and "Forrest Gump", Tom Hanks, has been reported to have dropped out from a new feature film project entitled "Fahrenheit 451". The quitting of the "The Da Vinci Code" star has been reported by MTV Movies Blog on March 28.

In an article posted by the site, it is noted that the news has been confirmed by the sci-fi drama's filmmaker Frank Darabont, who earlier also revealed Hanks' involvement in the movie as Guy Montag. "Mr. Hanks sadly and regretfully had to back out," Darabont explained. "I was really looking forward to working with him again but his other commitments just precluded it. He had to take a step back."

Based on Ray Bradbury's 1953 novel of the same title, "Fahrenheit" follows the story of Montag, a young fireman who encountered a young woman who shook his core belief and ideals. Set to be released sometime in 2009, the film will see Darabont as the film's director as well as its scribbler. Before Hanks, it was reported that actors, such as Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt as well as Tom Cruise, had been considered to star as the lead role.
