Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg May Re-Team For U-2 Spy Plane Incident Film
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.21.2014

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are looking at working together again. THR reports that Hanks has signed on to topline an as-yet-untitled Cold War thriller based on the U-2 spy plane incident in the 1960s and that Spielberg is circling it as a directing project.

The U-2 incident happened in 1960, when pilot Gary Powers was flying the famous spy plane through Soviet airspace. He was shot down and the US government denied the existence of the plan at first until the USSR showed the plane's remains, Powers and photos that he had taken of military bases in Russia. The incident was a huge black mark on the US and escalated tensions between the two Cold War giants. Powers was convicted of espionage and served time in prison before being released as part of a prisoner exchange.

The film is written by Matt Charman and will follow the American lawyer (played by Hanks) who was set with the task of negotiating Powers' release. Hanks and Spielberg have worked with each other previous as actor and director in 1998's Saving Private Ryan, 2002's Catch Me If You Can and 2004's The Terminal.
