Tom Hanks is teaming up with director Tom Tykwer once again for the film adaption of Dave Egger’s novel A Hologram For The King.
Tykwer has adapted the novel for film and plans to direct the independent film. Right now the film is in the process of securing financing.
A Hologram For The King was a finalist for the National Book Award last year.
Hanks is set to play a failing businessman who heads to Saudi Arabia in search for something better. Hanks, along with colleagues Gary Goetzman and Stefan Arndt, are set to produce the film.
Fans can now see Hanks on Broadway in Lucky Guy.
Deadline was first to report the news.
