Recently we heard that Steven Spielberg (Lincoln) was to direct Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) in an upcoming cold war drama. Now it's being reported that the Coen Brothers (Inside Llewyn Davis) are to rewrite the script.
The film tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who was thrust into the center of the Cold War when he negotiated with the KGB for the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers.
This is amazing! Steven Spielberg is my favorite director of all time, Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors and the Coen Brothers are some of the greatest writers/directors working today. This is a team up unlike any other! I am extremely excited for this movie now because all that talent working together is going to be a dream.
Are you guys excited for Spielberg, Hanks and the Coen Brothers to be working on the same movie?
