Hanks & Son Will Do "Great" Together

According to Variety, actor Tom Hanks and his son, actor Colin Hanks, will co-star with Kevin Kline in a magic-intensive comedy entitled "The Great Buck Howard." Former schlock-maker Sean McGinly graduates to the big-time with this one, as he'll be writing and directing "Howard."

"Bristol Bay Prods. has come on board to fully finance "The Great Buck Howard," the Colin Hanks-Tom Hanks magician comedy. Kevin Kline is in talks to join the cast. Sean McGinly will direct his script, and production will begin in July in New York. Playtone's Hanks and Gary Goetzman will produce.

Kline is negotiating to play a renowned illusionist whose career is on the wane. Colin Hanks will play a kid fresh out of school who becomes the magic man's assistant. In a smaller role, Tom Hanks plays Buck's father, who is not at all enthused about his son's career choice."

Mr. McGinly's earlier films include "Venomous," "Fugitive Mind," and "Sonic Impact."

This pairing was a natural. The passing of the torch, maybe?

Ok, what the hell. This is like the third movie coming out about an illusionast/ magician. What's with the sudden urge to make these movies?

Well, look on the bright side; if these movies suck, we have the power to make them disappear from the cinemas!
