Destined to be one of the best movies of the year, DreamWorks Pictures’ BRIDGE OF SPIES, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks, will be in theatres everywhere this Friday! Sounds like a date night!
Bridge of Spies
DreamWorks Pictures’/Fox 2000 Pictures’ upcoming dramatic thriller directed by three time Academy Award® winning director Steven Spielberg (“Saving Private Ryan,” “Schindler’s List”) and starring two time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (“Forrest Gump,” “Philadelphia”), has been titled “Bridge of Spies.” In addition, 12 time Oscar® nominee Thomas Newman (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,”“Saving Mr. Banks”) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams’ schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.
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.
