Losing a parent to the attacks on 9/11 seems like the hardest thing to deal with. AsĀ Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close illustrates, it becomes infinitely more difficult when that parent is Tom Hanks. He seems like such a fun dad and now he’s gone and we all miss his voice. Al Qaeda will pay in blood.

The drama looks like an interesting adventure. After losing his Tom Hanks in the attacks on the World Trade Center, a young boy is convinced that his father left a hidden message for him somewhere in New York City. He explores the five boroughs in search of a lock that fits the key his dad left behind, and moves past his complicated feelings of loss to see that there is more to the world around him. It also looks emotionally draining. He was such a fun dad.

What is a luck break, Alex? 12-year old Thomas Horn made headlines after winning $31,000 on “Jeopardy!” Not only did he get to make small talk with Alex Trebek, but that appearance has now lead to his casting in Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. He’ll join the Tom Hanks/Sandra Bullock drama as a young boy who loses his father in the World Trade Center collapse on September 11th, 2001. He finds a key in his father’s belongings and sets forth to discover what it unlocks. Oh God, please don’t let it be a gun.

Good for Horn, though. It’s got to feel pretty good at any age to have such a whirlwind life. To think, one minute you’re winning on “Jeopardy!,” the next you have a successful film career. Sorry, “Weird” Al. (Deadline)
