Tom Hanks might play Walt Disney in Mary Poppins making of

Tom Hanks is considering portraying Walt Disney in the ‘making of Mary Poppins‘ dramedy Saving Mr. Banks, Deadline reports.

The film will tell of Walt’s 14-year attempt at convincing Aussie author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to make a movie from her series of children’s books.

Travers’ tale was highly personal, hence her hesitation to hand over the rights. She hated the final product – particularly the animated sequences – and never worked with Disney again. Not sure if that will make it into the Mouse House produced feature.

John Lee Hancock is attached to direct.
