"Terminal", a major film from director Steven Spielberg and actor Tom Hanks, is now casting for this fall.

This Dreamworks film will star Tom Hanks as an immigrant named Viktor Navorski who is fleeing his war-torn Eastern European homeland. He finds himself detained in the terminal at New York City's JFK airport when the time of his landing coincides with a political coup back in his tiny country of Slovenia.

Now unable to enter the U.S. or to go back home to a country that no longer exists, he is forced to take up residence in the terminal itself, befriending the staff of the airport, and falling in love with an airline flight attendant.

Production will begin on September 30, 2003.

CAST MEMBERS: Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Chi McBride, Stanley Tucci.
