Barry Levinson has signed on to direct the western, Boone's Lick for Playtone.

Tom Hanks is set to produce and star in along side Julianne Moore; the film centers on a headstrong woman (Moore) who drags her family on a rickety wagon from Boone's Lick, Mo., to the Wyoming fort where her husband lives. The Hollywood Reporter adds her brother-in-law (Hanks) escorts her on the dangerous journey and along the way falls in love with her.

A fall start is scheduled for production on Boone's Lick.
