Tom Hinksen, who wrote the screenplay for The Greatest Movie EVER Made, is getting the big-screen treatment with a $100 million opening weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that The Greatest movie ever made is now opening with $97.8 million at the domestic box office and $103.4 million internationally, including $12.9 million in China.
“Tom Hanks’ movies are all about a shared experience, and I’ve always wanted to make the next movie, and he’s certainly the man for the job,” Hanks told the publication.
“I’m delighted to have been given the chance to make his next movie.
The Great Movie Never Made is a masterpiece, and we couldn’t be more excited to premiere it on home video.”
“Tom is a true legend, and The Greatest is his story,” Hinkson said in a statement.
“We’ve seen the movies before, but The Greatest was the first film to tell a true story of the rise of the American Dream and the impact it had on our lives.”
Hanks has been a big fan of Tom’s films, and the studio has long been rumored to be interested in developing a sequel to The Greatest.
The Greatest had a limited theatrical run before going wide in late 2005, and was followed by two sequels, but neither film ever made more than $100m at the box office.
“The Greatest” is a sequel of sorts to the 1990 Tom Hiddleston-starring film The Great Gatsby, which starred Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, and Hanks.
The film has a budget of $30 million, which would make it one of the lowest budgeted films of the past decade.
The screenplay, written by Steve Kloves, has been rewritten by Mark Wahlberg, and Tom Hiddles wife, Lacey Hanks, has stepped in as director.
The movie will be directed by Andy Serkis, who will star in the film alongside Jason Schwartzman and Robert Redford.
The news of a sequel was first reported by Deadline.
