Forrest Gump reunion
Meanwhile, in the United States, preparations are underway for the reunion of Robert Zemeckis, Eric Roth, Tom Hanks and Robin Wright . The director, screenwriter and protagonists of Forrest Gump will return to collaborate in the film Here , an adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name by Richard McGuire . Unlike the 90s classic, however, the new film will be set in a single location in New England. At first a wasteland, that place will become a home, where couples and families will experience love, loss, fatigue and hope over the generations, from the past to the distant future. Filming will begin in September.
