Joel & Ethan Coen rewriting Steven Spielberg’s Cold War thriller

Well, here are two great flavours that hopefully go great together.

Joel and Ethan Coen, busy at work prepping their next film Hail Caesar, are taking the time to rework the script to Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Cold War thriller, THR reports.

Still untitled, the pic tells of attorney James Donovan’s real-life efforts to negotiate the release of a downed spy plane pilot with the KGB.

Tom Hanks, who previously starred in Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan and The Terminal (not to mention the Coens’ flop The Ladykillers), is set to play Donovan in the flick.

It was recently revealed that Spielberg was also prepping an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The BFG, but it’s expected he’ll begin production on this smaller thriller before embarking on that big family film.
