" Actor Tom Hanks fell to his death while making a film in New Zealand "
True or false ?
Rumor has it that the well known hollywood actor Tom Hanks had an accident while working on his movie in the morning of 16th November this year .
The rumor circulated the internet via e-mail and on some bogus websites (that I wouldn' recommend visiting) . Here's a copy of the message :
Actor - Tom Hanks Falls To His Death In New Zealand
THIS STORY IS STILL DEVELOPING...
Actor Tom Hanks died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning - November 16, 2006.
Preliminary reports from New Zealand Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-set. Specific details are not yet available.
The accident occured at aproximatly 4:30 a.m. (UTC/GMT +12). Additional details and information will be forthcoming.
New Zealand, in recent years has grown in populariaty as a backdrop for Hollywood producers because of it's scenic and rugged landscape.
Recent movies filmed in New Zealand include The Lord Of the Rings, King Kong, and The Chronicles Of Narnia.
I am happy to tell you that this is not true (because Tom H. wasn't even in New Zealand on that day) and that he is well and alive and working on his upcomiing movie Charlie Wilson's War.
