Universal Pictures has acquired "How Starbucks Saved My Life" based on a 102-page proposal and attached Tom Hanks to star and Gus Van Sant to direct

Universal Pictures apparently intended to do it quick. Soon as the studio has acquired the rights to "", it directly attached Hollywood actor to star in and Gus Van Sant to direct. Besides starring in, Hanks also is set to produce alongside Gary Goetzman.

Based on a 102-page proposal by Michael Gates Gill, the book centers on the writer, former J. Walter Thompson executive who found himself down and out when he was downsized out of a job. In his 60s and in a personal tailspin because of an affair that ended his marriage, Gill saw his luck change when he entered a Starbucks and walked out with a job offer from the store's manager, giving his life new purpose.
