Robert Zemeckis’ ‘Here,’ Reuniting Tom Hanks and Robin Wright, Lands Awards Season Release

Sony Pictures’ forthcoming drama feature Here, reuniting the creative forces behind Forrest Gump, is getting a prime awards season spot on the theatrical calendar.

Sony announced Friday that the film from director Robert Zemeckis, writer Eric Roth, and stars Tom Hanks and Robin Wright is set for a platform release this November. Here will hit Los Angeles and New York theaters Nov. 15 ahead of a limited release the following week, before going wide Nov. 27.

Zemeckis directs Here from a script he wrote with Roth that is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Richard McGuire. It tells the story of multiple families over the course of generations and a location that is special to them.

Paul Bettany, Kelly Reilly and Michelle Dockery round out the ensemble cast. Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Derek Hogue and Bill Block serve as producers.

The Hollywood Reporter reported last year that Hanks and Wright will be de-aged in the film using the generative artificial intelligence-driven tool known as Metaphysic Live. “With Here, the film simply wouldn’t work without our actors seamlessly transforming into younger versions of themselves,” Zemeckis said at the time.

Zemeckis, Roth, Hanks and Wright were all part of 1994’s Oscar-winning smash Forrest Gump, which hits its 30th anniversary this summer. The movie was the year’s second-highest-grossing title and collected six Academy Awards, including best picture, along with trophies for Hanks for best actor, Zemeckis for best director and Roth for best adapted screenplay.

Hanks’ other previous projects with frequent collaborator Zemeckis include Cast Away, The Polar Express and Disney’s 2022 live-action version of Pinocchio. Zemeckis has worked with Wright on such films as Beowulf and A Christmas Carol.
