With ‘Otto,’ Rita Wilson Had The Right Project & The Right Star

Stockholm, Sweden – December 13, 2022: Tom Hanks and producer Rita Wilson at the Premiere for Columbia Pictures A MAN CALLED OTTO, at Filmstaden Rigoletto.

A Man Called Otto started its life as a Swedish novel (A Man Called Ove), followed by a Swedish film adaptation. Rita Wilson saw the potential for the story as an American film, and her production company secured the rights. Of course, it helped that Wilson had a pretty big star she could easily attach to the project: her husband (and one of her production partners), Tom Hanks. The project has been in the works for more than five years; now that it’s done and on the big screen, Wilson told us she knew it was going to be something special from the very first day of shooting.
