Tom Hanks will star for Universal Pictures in “Charlie Wilson’s War,” an Aaron Sorkin-scripted drama about a rogue Texas congressman. The movie, to be produced by Hanks and Gary Goetzman under their Universal-based Playtone banner, will be the next film Hanks makes after he completes “The Da Vinci Code” for director Ron Howard and Sony. Universal has set a tentative spring start date for “Charlie Wilson’s War,” and a director will soon be chosen from a short list. Hanks will play Wilson, a congressman whose penchant for booze and babes earned him the nickname Good Time Charlie. Wilson almost watched his political career go down the drain when he got caught in an hot tub tryst with a couple of coke-sniffing showgirls in Vegas. He survived the scandal and ended up overseeing the largest and most successful covert CIA operation in history. His efforts to fund resistance fighters in Afghanistan hastened the fall of the Iron Curtain. Wilson is now a D.C. lobbyist.
