Tom Hanks Would You Make me a Cinnamon Latte?
Love it or hate it...Starbucks is taking over the world.
Everyone loves to use every media avenue they can to bust into our daily consciousness, and if product placement wasn't enough...welcome the new movie: "How Starbucks Saved My Life."
And Tom Hanks is slated to star in the film!! (At first I thought maybe this film would be a little less controversial than the Da Vinci Code, and then I realized perhaps it could be equally controversial...because EVERYONE seems to have a Starbucks opinion).
The movie is based on a fiction book proposal by Michael Gates Gill (no idea who he is) and is at this point said to be directed by Gus Van Sant (Elephant, Finding Forrester, Good Will Hunting, Even Cow Girls Get the Blues, My Own Private Idaho, Drugstore Cowboy).
If I were casting director I see if Jennifer Aniston could be in this film and act as a Starbuck's barista...for some reason I can picture that?
In the film Tom Hanks would play a guy who's laid off work at his real job and ends up getting hired at Starbucks when nothing else will work out. He works there supporting his family.

Note: I love the post here at Heckler Spray about the new movie, also I first heard about it from this Looking Closer post. The picture above is from this site that has pictures of a 2003 Christmas parade in Milwaukee that featured this scary and ominous Starbucks float.
