It has been thirteen years since Forrest Gump captured audiences worldwide, and now we’re hearing that the often talked about sequel is close Get version.
CinemaBlend‘s “absolutely reliable, unfortunately anonymous source” claims that the project is in development after years of sitting on the shelf.
In 2001, Eric Roth wrote a screenplay based on Winston Groom’s 1995 follow-up novel Gump & Co. The project did not take place due to a legal dispute between Paramount and author Winston Groom, who claimed he wasn’t paid properly for Forrest Gump. This is referred to in the opening paragraph of Book II, where the Gump warns the readers will not allow anyone to make a movie about his life.
Gump & Co takes place several years after the events of the first book/movie. Forrest is the shrimp may go bankrupt and Jenny dead, leaving Forrest to provide for Forrest, Jr., his intelligent, though emotionally distant, son. Forrest’s mother had died also. Jenny occasionally makes an appearance as a sort of guardian angel to Forrest son. Gump learns through the most important events in the United States in the 1980s and the early 1990s. Some of the events include: playing football in the New Orleans Saints, selling encyclopedias, works in a pig farm, which helps develop the infamous New Coke, accidentally crashing the Exxon Valdez, helping destroy the Berlin Wall, and fighting in Operation Desert Storm. He meets many celebrities, including Oliver North, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Jim Bakker, Ivan Bosco, Ronald Reagan, Saddam Hussein, bill and Hillary Clinton and, of course, Tom Hanks.
But Tom Hanks and Gary Sinise be willing to work on the second part? And is Haley Joel Osment too old to return as Forrest Gump Jr.? Robert sites be able to clear time in the schedule? And it would be a good idea?
