Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks are about to get "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close."
The Oscar-winning duo will co-star in the big screen adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's novel, an individual familiar with the project told The Wrap.
Paramount and Warner Bros. are teaming to co-finance the project.
Oscar nominee Stephen Daldry ("The Hours," "The Reader") will direct from a script by Oscar winner Eric Roth ("Forrest Gump"), while Scott Rudin will produce.
The post-9/11-set novel, published in 2005, follows a 9-year-old boy whose father was killed in the terrorist attacks. The boy finds a key in a vase that belonged to his father and sets out on a mission to discover what it unlocks.
Hanks' role is said to be extremely small, but when you're dealing with one of the five greatest actors of all-time, you take what you can get, right?
"Extremely Loud" would mark Bullock's first role since "The Blind Side." Hanks is currently directing himself and Julia Roberts in Universal's "Larry Crowne."
