Tom Hanks gets into the game-making business

GamesBeat's Mike Minotti: Tom Hanks is probably the last person you think of when I say “video games,” but the famous actor is dipping his toes into the industry with a new iOS and Android app, Electric City: The Revolt, a 99-cent role-playing game. Jump Games is developing the title in collaboration with the Forrest Gump star’s production company, Playtone. (Android, Electric City: The Revolt, iPad, iPhone)

I hope he makes a game called Saving Ryan's Private. That would be so awesome and the gameplay would be so innovative, no one would dare play it.

I think a saving private ryan game would work great for him, especially for mo cap.
