Love While You Dare To

Recently posted on the films-in-development website Done Deal:

Title: Ikiru
Log line: A low-level bureaucrat discovers that after 30 years in the same job, he’s contracted stomach cancer. Determined to seek more from the remaining moments of his life, he seeks out decadent pursuits before deciding he wants to leave behind something memorable.
Writer: Richard Price
Agent: David O’Connor of CAA
Buyer: DreamWorks
Price: n/a
Genre: Drama
Logged: 9/10/04
More: Remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1952 film. Jim Sheridan will work with Price to polish his script. Walter Parkes and Stone Village’s Scott Steindorff will produce. Jim Sheridan will direct. Tom Hanks may star.
Now here I thought Tom Hanks already starred in a remake of Ikiru... or does nobody remember Joe Versus the Volcano?
