The Oscar-winning actor and director will be live on stage for ‘An Evening with Tom Hanks’ show.

Hollywood legend Tom Hanks is coming to Liverpool next month for a special event at the city’s Empire Theatre. The actor and director has turned his considerable talents to writing and is coming to town to promote his debut novel, The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece.

The Oscar-winning star of Philadelphia and Forrest Gump will be live on stage for ‘An Evening with Tom Hanks’ show to discuss his book, which is a wildly ambitious story of the making of a colossal, star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film, and the humble comic book that inspired it all.
