The film screened at the Tribeca Film Festival with positive results, and IFC First Take has picked up the thriller for a 2007 release.
The film stars Hanks and Ana Claudia Talancón -- seen next in Linklater's Fast Food Nation and was written and directed by Eric Nicholas (River Rats). Alone With Her centers on a stalker (Hanks) with a knack for hidden cameras who becomes obsessed with Talancón. Most of the buzz surrounding the film was because of a scene in which Hanks enjoys some "one on one" time with himself while he watches the object of his affection do the same -- It looks like we're a long way from Orange County now. Hanks decided to go the DeNiro route and gained a fair amount of weight for the project, "The guy sits every night in front of the computer, watching his quote-unquote girlfriend, so it's not like he's going to be jogging on the treadmill for 15 minutes every day. It made sense." The one thing Colin does have in common with his dad is a strong on-screen presence, so maybe the release of Alone With Her might just help nudge him out of his father's shadow just a little bit.
