A master of deception, he was also a brilliant forger, whose skill at check fraud had netted him millions of dollars in stolen funds. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) had made 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 (TVs The West Wing), Nathalie Baye, Amy Adams, James Brolin, Brian Howe, Frank John Hughes and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Garner (TVs 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.
