Tom Hanks will release a short story collection (+video)

Hanks said his collection will be related to his collection of typewriters, 'not about the typewriters themselves, but rather the stories are something that might have been written on one of them.'

Actor Tom Hanks is continuing his foray into fiction.

Hanks is publishing a collection of short stories related to his collection of typewriters, which he said in a statement he’s been gathering since 1978. The book will be published by Alfred A. Knopf.

“The stories are not about the typewriters themselves, but rather the stories are something that might have been written on one of them,” Hanks said in the statement.

The actor recently published a short story – his fiction debut, according to The New York Times – titled “Alan Bean Plus Four.” 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a release date for the untitled short story collection was not announced. 

Hanks also wrote the screenplay for the 1996 movie “That Thing You Do!” and co-wrote the script for the 2011 movie “Larry Crowne,” both of which he directed, as well as other work.

He recently starred as Walt Disney in the 2013 movie “Saving Mr. Banks” and will be reprising his role of Robert Langdon in the adaptation of Dan Brown’s novel “The Lost Symbol” as well as starring in the film adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel “A Hologram for the King.”
