Catch Me If You Can - Movie Production Notes

Catch Me If You Can

DiCaprio on the run from Hanks .

Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (“What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,” “Titanic”) and two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Philadelphia,” “Forrest Gump”) engage in a game of cat and mouse in “Catch Me If You Can,” under the direction of three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg (“Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List”).

Frank W. Abagnale (Leonardo DiCaprio) worked as a doctor, a lawyer and as a co-pilot for a major airline—all before his 21st birthday. A master of deception, he was also a brilliant forger, whose skill at check fraud netted him millions of dollars in stolen funds. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) makes it his prime mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead of him, baiting him to continue the chase.

“Catch Me If You Can” also stars Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (“The Deer Hunter”), Golden Globe Award winner Martin Sheen (TV’s “The West Wing”), Nathalie Baye, Amy Adams, James Brolin, Brian Howe, Frank John Hughes and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Garner (TV’s “Alias”).

Steven Spielberg directed “Catch Me If You Can” from a screenplay by Jeff Nathanson, based on the autobiographical book of the same name by Frank W. Abagnale with Stan Redding. The film was produced by Steven Spielberg and Walter F. Parkes (“The Ring,” “Men in Black II”), with Barry Kemp, Laurie MacDonald, Michel Shane and Tony Romano executive producing.
