Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg look likely to team up once again on another war movie, this time for a thriller set during the Cold War.
The dream team behind critical and commerical hits like Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and the 2001 mini-series Band of Brothers, will reportedly work together on the movie set during the height of political tensions between U.S. and Russia.
According to Variety, Hanks has signed on to play the lead role in the untitled project while Spielberg is eying to direct for DreamWorks.
The movie is based on the true story of U.S. attorney, James Donovan, enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to negotiate the release of a pilot who was captured after his spy plane was shot down over Russia.

Matt Charman writes the script, and Marc Platt will produce with Spielberg on what will mark the actor and director's fourth collaboration in a feature film, the first since 2004's The Terminal.
Both Hanks and Spielberg are set to have a busy few months as the actor will next play a key role in A Hologram for the King. Spielberg, meanwhile, is said to be in talks for sci-fi thriller Robopocalypse and Aztec drama Montezuma.
