Tom Hanks is in discussions to star in Major Matt Mason, a live-action feature film based on the classic Mattel action figure. Universal will develop the property and Hanks will also serve as a producer. This isn't the first time the actor has starred in a toy-related movie. He lent his voice to the animated Toy Story franchise, which launched in 1995.
Mason was an astronaut who lead a team that worked on the moon and resided in a space station. The toy line originated in 1966 and was a hit due to its release into the marketplace coinciding with the original moon mission. The line was discontinued in the 1970s.
Speed scribe Graham Yost is writing the screenplay.
