appearing on the Happy sad confused Podcast, Hanks was asked why so few of his most famous films have had sequels.

The actor said it while intrigued by the new Bollywood remake Forrest Gumphe had no interest in reviving any of his old characters.

“I will say that with a long time between we tried to talk about one another Forrest Gump that lasted a whole 40 minutes,” Hanks said. “And then we never — we said, ‘Guys, come on.'”

The actor said he would only return to a character if he felt there was a story strong enough to return.

“One smart thing I did is that I never signed a deal that had a contractual commitment to a sequel,” Hanks said. “I’ve always said, ‘Guys, if there’s a reason for it, let’s do it. But you can’t force me.’”

“There’s this natural inclination, which is one of pure commercialism, that’s like, ‘Hey, you just had a hit, so do it again and you’re going to have a hit.”

In 2020, Hanks announced that he and director Robert Zemeckis had both paid for numerous filming sessions Forrest Gump out of pocket when Paramount refused to fund them.

One of the sequences in question is when Gump runs across America in the middle of the movie. According to Hanks, Paramount said it was too expensive, although Zemeckis had argued it was vital to shoot.
