Oscar-winner Tom Hanks has pacted with publisher Knopf Doubleday on a collection of stories inspired by his personal collection of typewriters, and the imagined tales spun by the writers who owned them. The project was preemptively acquired by Knopf from ICM for its Alfred A. Knopf imprint, covering all world English rights. “I’ve been collecting typewriters for no particular reason since 1978 – both manual and portable machines dating from the thirties to the nineties. The stories are not about the typewriters themselves, but rather, the stories are something that might have been written on one of them,” said Hanks, who’s been published in the New Yorker as a fiction writer and scripted his own films That Thing You Do! and Larry Crowne. No publication date has been set.
