It is Tom Hanks who is looking forward to develop the project based upon World War II themed movie. However, it is also reported that the ‘Larry Crowne’ director is going to adapt Erik Larson’s best selling novel ‘In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin’ to be transformed into a film for Universal Pictures.

Furthermore, the non-fiction book chronicles the real life of William Dodd, the United States Ambassador to Berlin in 1933, which was Hitler’s first year in power. Soon after the first year unfolds and the shadows deepen, Dodd and his family experience days full of excitement, intrigue, romance and ultimately, horror that will be a climatic spasm of violence and murder that reveals Hitler’s true character and ruthless ambition.

Recently, Tom Hanks has executive produced ‘The Pacific’ miniseries. Gary Goetzman will be producing ‘In the Garden of Beasts’ through their banner ‘Playtone’. However, the ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ actor is reportedly also eying the project as a potential starring vehicle. The non-fiction book of Larson, ‘The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic and Madness at the Fair that Changed America’ is currently also in development by Leonardo DiCaprio via his Appian Way production company.
