Sitting down with the BBC to promote his new film Larry Crowne, Tom Hanks was asked about his new granddaughter and whether 'there will be a Toy Story 4 for her to see'.
"I think there will be, yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think they’re working on it now," he told interviewer Tim Muffett. "There you go." (Watch video starting at 2:28.)
Before you get all excited (or upset, as the case may be) this could be just a big slip-up. Maybe Hanks had future Toy Story Toons on his mind and that's what he was referring to.
But what strikes me is Hanks' demeanor as he says it—he seems really serious, almost worried that he's spilled the beans on something he shouldn't have.
This is exactly the kind of drumbeat we got before Cars 2 was officially announced.
Update: He said it again!
"I understand it's happening and if it is, I hope they'll hire me." Hanks tells CNN/HLN's Showbiz Tonight.
There you go, people. There you go.
