Hurrah, it’s finally got a name! Even since it was first announced, Steven Spielberg’s next move has been going by the less than catchy name, ‘Untitled Steven Spieberg Cold War Thriller’, but that’s changed as the first official image from the movie has been released along with the info that it will be called Bridge Of Spies.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.
‘Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.’
The film will be released in cinemas on 9th October, 2015, in UK and Ireland.
