Disney rejected many pitches for the film, reveals The Wrap - and even considered buying the script to bury it.

"It's an amazing true story," a Disney insider told HuffPost UK Comedy. "Now is the right time to tell it."

Daniel Day-Lewis is currently in the running to play Tom Hanks, the insider revealed, while Meryl Streep is apparently being considered for the role of Emma Thompson.
