‘Bridge of Spies’ Trailer Sends Tom Hanks on a Cold War Mission

‘Bridge of Spies’ Trailer Sends Tom Hanks on a Cold War Mission

Tom Hanks makes his bid for a third Oscar with the true-story adaptation Bridge of Spies, in theaters this fall. Four months after the domestic Bridge of Spies trailer was released, 20th Century Fox has debuted an international trailer with new footage that shows how one American lawyer was unwittingly thrust into the Cold War. This dramatic thriller marks Tom Hanks' third collaboration with director Steven Spielberg, following Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me If You Can.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Tom 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.

Tom Hanks Eyes Clint Eastwood's Sully Sullenberger Biopic

Just two weeks after Clint Eastwood signed on to direct an untitled biopic about Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, Deadline reports Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Tom Hanks to play the hero pilot. When Clint Eastwood signed on to direct, some thought that the filmmaker himself should play Sully, but Tom Hanks is no stranger to true-life heroic captains, portraying cargo ship leader Captain Phillips in the 2013 biopic of the same name. No production schedule has been given at this time, and it isn't known when Warner Bros. may release the biopic.

On January 15, 2009, Sully Sullenberger became a national hero, after pulling off an incredible emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in what has become known as Miracle on the Hudson. After a flock of geese flew into the plane shortly after takeoff, the pilot managed a miraculous landing in the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers on board, making him a national hero. The project is based on the pilot's 2009 book Highest Duty, which he co-wrote with Jeffrey Zaslow, chronicling his childhood, military service and his years as a commercial airline pilot.
