Steven Spielberg & Tom Hanks

Following news that director Steven Spielberg was considering a reunion with Lincoln and Munich writer Tony Kushner for a religious drama called The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, yet another potential project has surfaced, and it would reunite him with another previous collaborator. THR reports Tom Hanks is attached to an untitled Cold War drama written by up and coming writer Matt Charman. The script tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers, who was held and interrogated by the KGB and imprisoned for espionage. Read on!

Spielberg isn't attached to the project, but it's one of several he's considering. As we said when The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara came up, Robopocalypse and Montezuma are still contenders, and we've also heard that a remake of West Side Story might be in the cards as well. If Spielberg does take on the project, it would mark the fourth time he's teamed up with Hanks following Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal (not to mention their collaboration as producers on "Band of Brothers"). We just hope Spielberg finds a project soon to follow-up his 2012 Best Picture nominee Lincoln. Thoughts?

We want robopocalypse

ROBOPOCALYPSE! Please just make it already while you're still able to think straight. That's probably why he's having such trouble picking a project, it's hard to dedicate 2-3 years of your life to a film as that time becomes more and more precious.
