First Look: Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's Untitled Cold War Drama
In case you didn't know, Tom Hanks is reteaming with director Steven Spielberg for a fourth time after previously working together on Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal. Two out of three isn't bad, and now the next film on the way is something completely different, a Cold War drama that has been referred to as St. James Place but is officially untitled as of now. The film follows the negotiation to recovering a captured pilot from behind enemy lines. But it's not a battlefield drama as this particular fight was waged by lawyer James Donovan. That's who Hanks is playing, and we have a first look below.
Here's the first image from from Steven Spielberg's untitled Cold War drama (via EW):
The Untitled War Drama (aka St. James Place) is directed by Steven Spielberg with a script originally by Matt Charman and rewritten by Oscar-winning writing and directing duo Joel & Ethan Coen. The film follows James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was held and interrogated by the KGB and imprisoned for espionage after being shot down for flying over Soviet airspace in 1960. Amy Ryan, Alan Alda and Mark Rylance also star in the DreamWorks film which Walt Disney's Touchstone Pictures will release in theaters next fall on October 16th, 2015.

Hell yes. Hanks has such a great voice for any film, especially when they involve a lot of quick, heavy dialogue. DIG it.

"Saving Pilot Francis Powers" would be a nice title.
