Tom Hanks and his producing partner Gary Goetzman have plans to adapt Erik Larson’s non-fiction novel In the Garden of the Beasts for the screen. The Hollywood Reporter has word that Universal has secured the rights to the book.

Plot

Journey to Berlin during Hitler’s first year in power, 1933, in the company of a real-life father and daughter from Chicago who suddenly found themselves transported to the heart of the city. They had no conception of the harrowing days that lay ahead. At the time, nothing was certain—Hitler did not yet possess absolute power, and few outsiders expected his government to survive. The family encountered a city suffused with energy and optimism, with some of the most striking, avant-garde buildings in the world. Its theaters, concert halls, and cafés were jammed; the streets teemed with well-dressed attractive people.
