A few weeks back we reported Tom Hanks is to team up once again with Steven Spielberg for a yet to be named Cold War project from Dreamworks.
Well the project is still without a name but we do know one thing, thanks to Variety. The writers of the script will be the Coen Brothers.
Marc Platt will produce with Spielberg. The Coen Brothers, who won screenwriting Oscars for “Fargo” and “No Country for Old Men,” are revising Matt Charman’s script.
The untitled project is based on the true story of James Donovan, who Hanks will portray. Donovan was the American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to surreptitiously negotiate the 1962 release of Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 spy plane pilot who was shot down over Russia two years earlier.
It seems confirmed by Dreamworks declined to comment at this time.
