In addition to Mariana Trevino, Rachel Keller, and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Tom Hanks will portray the title character, Otto. The film will be directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Word War Z, Quantum of Solace, Christopher Robin). The script’s writer is David Mcgee (Finding Neverland, Life of Pi).

New Release Date

A Man Called Otto, starring Tom Hanks, will now only have a limited theatrical release (in New York and Los Angeles) on Christmas Day 2022. The film was originally scheduled for a December 14th wide release (December 25th).

According to reports, A Man Call Otto will have a significant cinema release on the 2023 Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend (January 13), putting it in competing directly for the holiday box office with the Universal/Blum house thriller M3GAN and Warner Bros.’ House Party remake.

After it was revealed that the movie provoked something of a fierce battle in the European Film Market, it gained attention earlier this year. Sony ultimately won the rights for $60 million, outbidding several other significant studios and broadcasters.

Hanks’ portrayal of legendary PBS kids shows host Fred Rodgers in Sony’s previous Hank film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which was released in 2019, won the actor his sixth Oscar nomination and first in the supporting part category.

A Man called Ove has been widely popular among the crowd and so is the globally renowned actor, Tom Hanks, so that makes A Man Called Otto one of the most anticipated releases for the next year.
