“Run, Forrest, Run!” was first heard in the 1994 release of Forrest Gump, which quickly became one of the decade’s biggest hits based off of the novel published in 1986.

 Tom Hanks starred in the story of a simple man from Alabama who was part of some of the biggest historical events of the 20th century. With an iconic star and an incredible storyline, Forrest Gump was considered a big budget film that cost the studio a whopping $55 million. As a money making machine, the film was well worth it and pulled in $677.9 million at the box office (that’s a lot of chocolates)!

By the success of the film, the original novel already had a sequel, Gump and Co., which was published in 1995. In 2001, Eric Roth had high hopes for adapting the script to portray Forrest’s life as a father in the 1990s and 2000s, taking him through more recent historical events. However, after the attacks on September 11th, Tom Hanks and the producers agreed that Forrest and his box of chocolates were no longer relevant, leaving him to forever run away from the bright lights of Hollywood.
