Tom Hanks and producing partner Gary Goetzman have joined forces with Universal to acquire the rights to W. Mark Felt's life story. Unless you've been locked in your private screening room  watching your toenails grow for the past month, you know that Felt recently outed himself as the informant known as Deep Throat, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's key to unlocking the Watergate scandal. Hanks and Goetzman will produce, but there's no word yet if the former will star. The deal includes rights to the Vanity Fair article Felt came out in, Felt's 1979 memoir, and a book he plans to write with lawyer John O'Connor, and O'Connor's own life rights.
