“When you enjoy those films and it’s crackerjack and it’s incredibly moving, all I can think of is, ‘I’m so happy this film lasts forever, so I got a chance to revisit it now.’ That might be the case with Road To Perdition.”

“This is what we have actually been doing forever,” he stated in an interview with Reuters, hosted by The Sun. “It’s what all of our kids grew up in. If we were a plumbing supply company or if we ran the flower designer shop down the street, the whole family would be putting in time at some point, even if it was just stock at the end of the year.
“The thing that does not change no matter what happens, no matter what your surname is, is whether it works or not. That’s the issue anytime any of us go off and try to inform a fresh story or develop something that has a beginning and a middle and an end.”
Hanks added:” [It] doesn’t matter what our surnames are. We need to do the work in order to make that a real and genuine experience for the audience.”
