TOM HANKS can now be seen in movie theaters in the tragicomedy A MAN CALLED OTTO. In the Hollywood remake, he plays the role of the not very likable grouch Otto, who drives the people around him completely up the wall. He hates disorder and is a know-it-all… Celebrity specialist JOE PUGLIESE c/o B&A REPS GERMANY met up with the otherwise quite congenial and down-to-earth actor for the key motif on commission for BLT Communications and Sony Pictures in Los Angeles (producer: Shelby Gordon, post production: Nick Leadley).
“I had a fun (and fast) key art shoot with Tom Hanks for his new movie A MAN CALLED OTTO. Sometimes, these sessions take all day with a bunch of sets and concepts, and other times, a legendary actor shows up on time, nails the character’s expressions, and we finish by 9am ? Special thanks to @bltcommunications and @sonypictures for having me. BTS photos by @zacharylarraz and billboard pic by @nickleadlay,” Joe says on Instagram.
A MAN CALLED OTTO by Swiss director Marc Forster is based on the book ‘A Man Called Ove’ from the bestseller list of the New York Times and tells the story of Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), an old grouch who sees no further point in living following the death of his wife. A MAN CALLED OTTO is a heartwarming and witty story about love, loss, and life itself, which shows that you can sometimes find a new family even in the most unexpected places.
