Tom Hanks To Play "Walt Disney"?

No, no.. not in an autobiographical movie. Rather, Tom Hanks is in negotiations to play Walt Disney in a movie about the making of "Mary Poppins" title "Saving Mr. Banks".

That's the hope for the studio, which -- according to Deadline.com -- is eyeing Hanks to star as Disney in "Saving Mr. Banks," a true-life story that follows the mogul's attempts to bring "Mary Poppins" to the big screen.
This might be a good movie if Disney will let it play the way it happened, rather than sugarcoat it. The creative tension between P.L. Travers and Walt can easily be the central story line here.
