    There is a rumour that Tom Hanks is in talks to play Walt Disney in the making of "Saving Mr. Banks," with Emma Thompson negotiating to play Mary Poppins author, P L Travers.

    The Disney project is based on the true story of how Walt Disney spent 14 years courting the Australian writer for the film rights to the character, played by Julie Andrews in the 1964 classic.

    Disney declined to comment, although sources close to the project confirmed that the talks are taking place.

    What do you think about this, is Tom Hanks the right man for the job?
