Joel and Ethan Coen To Write Film For Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.21.2014

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joel and Ethan Coen are set to write the script for the Steven Spielberg-Tom Hanks Cold War thriller at Dreamworks. The film follows the real story of James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated with the KGB for the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers.

It was written by Matt Charman and set up last year. Hanks joined the project in April. It could be Spielberg's next project and is currently set to shoot in Europe this September. Of course, Spielberg is also attached to Dreamworks and The Weinstein Company's upcoming religious period drama, Fox's Robopocalypse and Montezuma, which looks at the relationship between the titular Aztec ruler and Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. He's also attached to direct an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG for Dreamworks, but that won't start until early 2015.

The Coens normally direct their own scripts but have occasionally written screenplays for others in the past, including Angelina Jolie's Unbroken. They last worked with Hanks on the 2004 movie The Ladykillers. This would be the fourth collaboration between Hanks and Spielberg after The Terminal, Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me If You Can. They also produced the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. Marc Platt will produce this film.
