In the Newmarket Shooting Script format, the only book tie-in to the new film starring Tom Hanks (Saving Private Ryan, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13) and Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets), directed by the Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Contact, What Lies Beneath), written by William Broyles, Jr. (Apollo 13, Entrapment)from 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks. Oscar-winner Tom Hanks stars as a FedEx inspector who survives a plane crash that leaves him stranded, alone, on a remote desert island for four years. A contemporary drama, Cast Away is about a man who is isolated and forced to transform himself in order to survive both physically and emotionally, and his adjustment when he finally does return to civilization and to his fiancee, played by Oscar-winner Helen Hunt. The Newmarket book includes the complete shooting script, an introduction by William Broyles who spent six years in collaboration with Hanks on Cast Away, stills, and the complete credits.
