At long last, Steven Spielberg has lined up his next project — his next two projects, in fact.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Spielberg’s next two movies have secured release dates. Up first is his currently untitled Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks and written by Joel and Ethan Coen. It tells the true story of an attorney named James Donovan, “who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.” The movie hits theaters on October 15, 2015.
Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The BFG will open July 1, 2016.
