Judging by the success of "Toy Story 3" - hello, Oscar - it wouldn't be a surprise if Pixar's trying to extend the tale of Woody and Buzz Lightyear into another movie.
Although "Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich told CNN back in December that there were more animated shorts on the way and not necessarily a sequel, Tom Hanks seems to have heard an update.
The actor, who voices Woody in the family films, told "Showbiz Tonight" at the premiere of his movie "Larry Crowne" on Monday that he believes a fourth installment is already underway.
"I understand it's happening and if it is, I hope they'll hire me [again]," he says. "They have almost every line I've ever said in the hard drive up there at Pixar. So they might not need me! I hope they'll have some unique grunts they're going to need from me so I can get in there and do it."
