Year Standing - 2015: Tom Hanks most anticipated project for 2015 is the untitled cold war spy thriller in which he is set to play the leading man, sounding interesting as far, but to put the icing on the cake the movie is also set to be directed by Steven Spielberg. 

Upcoming Projects (Movies) - 2015: "Untitled Cold War Spy Thriller", "A Hologram for the King", "Ithaca".

How Rich is Tom Hanks?: Tom Hanks is an American actor, producer, director, screenwriter, and motivational speaker, with a net worth of $350 million. Hanks has become a Hollywood icon for his memorable roles playing such characters as Forrest Gump (in "Forrest Gump"), the voice of Woody (in "Toy Story"), and Robert Langdon (in "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels & Demons"), in major motion picture films. The point is that few people who are familiar with Hollywood around the world will not recognise the actors name as he is such a renowned actor for his extraordinary talent on-screen.

It is quite clear that where there is extraordinary acting talent possessed by a Hollywood star like Tom Hanks, wealth and fortune is sure to follow.

Tom Hanks Acting Career - How Has it Made Hanks Wealthy?: Hanks was nominated for his first Oscar playing Josh in the hit movie, Big (1988),  giving Hank's credibility as an actor in Hollywood, and later for his role playing Andrew Beckett in Philadelphia (1993) Hanks won his first Oscar, then shortly after for his role playing Forrest Gump in the hit classic, Forrest Gump (1994) Hanks won his second Oscar award. This has set in stone a place for Tom Hanks among the finest actors to ever set foot in Hollywood.

Although Hank's is still yet to receive another Oscar award, he has continued to plough his way through one commercially and critically successful movie to another with ease; from "Toy Story" (1995) and "Saving Private Ryan" (1998), to even more all-round successful movies; including "Cast Away" (2000), "Catch Me If You Can" (2002), "The Da Vinci code" (2006), and "Saving Mr. Banks" (2013).

Giving a strong indication as to how much money Hanks has been earning from his movies is with the estimated earnings for his part in playing Forrest Gump in the classic, "Forrest Gump" (1994), as shockingly enough Hanks received a lump sum of $70 million, which is mostly due to him having taken out a gross participation for the movie, on top of a normal up-front paycheque.

Not to mention, Hanks also to this very day earns money from his gross participation in others of his previous movies, which will make him a large sum of money annually which will likely come into the tens, if not, hundreds of thousands of dollars figure.

Tom Hanks Future Projects - How Will it Affect his Fortune?: Tom Hanks is still very much an in-demand actor in Hollywood, easily demanding a paycheque between $10-20 million per film he does, and with a leading role in an upcoming Spielberg movie (untitled cold war spy thriller, 2015) and two more Robert Langdon movies in the pipeline, one currently in pre-production, there's no doubt that Hanks net worth is going to alter in all of the right ways within the coming year.
