That Thing You Do!

4 Oct, 1996

In his directing debut, Hanks writes and co-stars as a music producer in a film about a 1960’s one hit wonder band in That Thing You Do! The film spawned a number one hit with That Thing You Do by the Wonders, the band featured in the film.

That’s whats nice about directing a film and having it done: There’s nothing more I can do about it. It’s done. That’s it. All I can do is let it go and hope that people are kind to it.
