According to Variety, Universal has tapped Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding") to pen "Talk of the Town" for Tom Hanks. The pair previously worked together on the wedding pic, which was produced by Hanks’ production company. (And you guys thought that was an "indie." Hah.)

"Universal Pictures has set up "Talk of the Town" as a star vehicle for Tom Hanks, tapping Nia Vardalos to write the pic.

Vardalos said she had resisted writing films for other thesps, but sparked to a "Talk of the Town" pitch that came from Hanks himself.

"Tom will play a man who is forced into a career change when he least expects it," Vardalos said."

That’s all we get, plot-wise, for now. In other Varda-related news, she’s been tapped to write a flick called "I Hate Valentine’s Day" for Revolution, plus she (brace yourself) has plans to pen a "Big Fat Greek" sequel.
