Steve Spielberg Reveals Personal Connection To U2 Spy Plane Incident, The Focus Of His ‘Bridge Of Spies’


Steven Spielberg Tom Hanks Mark Rylance Austin Stowell

Steven Spielberg’s latest film, Bridge of Spies, is based on the diplomatic relations between the U.S. and U.S.S.R. following the 1960 incident in which an American spy plane was shot down over Russian territory and its pilot, Francis Gary Powers, captured. Spielberg has a connection with the incident, as he revealed in a recent interview.

Watch The Bridge Of Spies Movie Trailer:

As it transpires, Spielberg’s father had seen the remains of the captured U2 spy plane whilst on a foreign exchange in Russia. Spielberg’s father, Arnold Spielberg, was an engineer for General Electric which had arranged the exchange in an attempt to improve relations between the U.S. and U.S.S.R.

Bridge Of Spies - He's A Spy Clip


Sometimes the law can get cause problems even for those who wrote them, particularly in the face of war. Thus, when an American spy plane is shot down while covertly photographing Russian bases, the thankfully unharmed pilot is held hostage by the foreign government. He'll only get to go home if America agrees to release their own spy, who's currently serving time in prison. Unfortunately, American law states that they can't just let a Russian spy go free without a proper appeal, and that's where James Donovan comes in. Donovan is a simple New York insurance lawyer not known for high-profile cases, but one thing he is is fair. He's asked to defend the spy and help organise the return of the American pilot, but that becomes a major sacrifice for the lawyer who now faces a struggle against some angry citizens who aren't going to let him forget it if they let the 'traitor' out of jail.

For Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks was given the opportunity to work with the Coen brothers and Steve Spielberg.

Bridge Of Spies Trailer


It's the height of the Cold War and things are getting tense between Russia and America. An American U-2 spy plane has been shot down while photographing Russian bases, its pilot held captive. They're willing to release him, however, if only the American government send back an imprisoned spy of their own. However, by American law, that's virtually impossible - and that's where James Donovan comes in. An insurance lawyer who's never dealt with a case of such high stakes, he is enlisted by the CIA to defend the Russian spy in court in order to have him released and sent home without charge. It seems an impossible task when the whole of America are against setting him free and indeed even neighbours turn against Donovan, targeting his family as he tries to give one man a fair trial.

Bridge Of Spies - International Trailer


James Donovan is a simple insurance lawyer from Brooklyn, New York whose cases have never evoked too much controversy. However, all that changes quickly when he is enlisted by the CIA to defend a Russian spy in an impossible mission to have him released from prison without charge and returned home. When an American spy plane pilot is shot down during a task of photographing Russian territory, he thankfully survives; however, the angry Russian government are not planning on handing him over too easily. The only problem is, the law is very much not on the side of the Russian spy and in order for their man to be flown home, the government have to find a loophole to release their own captive. Donovan believes everyone deserves a fair trial, but he's one of very few people who do and by putting his life on the line to help his country during the Cold War, he's risking his family too.

Tom Hanks Close To Sealing Role As "Sully" Sullenberger In Clint Eastwood's New Movie


Tom Hanks Clint Eastwood

Tom Hanks is in negotiations with Clint Eastwood and Warner Bros. to play the role of Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger in the studio’s forthcoming biopic movie about the life of the heroic pilot, it has been widely reported.

According to Deadline and multiple other sources, 58 year old Hanks is set to be the first person cast in the movie. Sullenberger became an instant national hero in January 2009 when he safely performed an emergency landing of a US Airways passenger jet on the Hudson River after a flock of geese had hit the plane moments after take-off from New York’s La Guardia airport, with all 155 passengers and crew surviving.

Bridge Of Spies - US Trailer


In 1960, the hard work of many good people was tested greatly. The height of the Cold War was set to see a series of peaceful negotiation between the Americans and Russians, but a week beforehand, everything changed. An American spy plane was shot down by Russian missiles, carrying pictures of various Russian air force bases. While the US government tried to deny the charges, the Russians were able to provide the pictures, the airplane wreckage, and the pilot - miraculously unharmed. In exchange for his return, they wanted one of their captured spies to be returned. James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks), a simple lawyer, was tasked with creating a case to allow the US government to release the Soviet spy without jail time - a request that seemed almost impossible in the face of Cold War prejudice.

Tom Hanks Hits Headlines Again For The Wrong Reasons After Son Chet's Latest Mess


Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks' career may be as hectic as ever, but now he's got his home life to stress over as his 24-year-old son Chester continues to hit headlines for the most controversial of reasons. Now, he's wanted by British police after allegedly, excuse the cliché, trashing a hotel room.

It seems Chet Hanks is desperate to achieve some kind of recognition, but instead of going down the route of his father and older brother Colin Hanks as a super serious movie star, he's opting for more of a rock 'n' roll lifestyle instead; which, in his case, apparently means drinking to excess and smashing up the furniture of his room in London and causing £1,200 damages.

Al Pacino Admits He's A Fan Of Tom Hanks 'I've Written Him Fan Mail!'


Al Pacino Tom Hanks

He might be famous for being an Oscar winning gangster actor, but Al Pacino takes on a role a little out of his comfort zone with 'Danny Collins'; a biographical movie about an up and coming musician inspired by John Lennon, who later receives a letter from his hero some 40 years after it was actually written.

Pacino has already confessed to having reservations about the eponymous part because it involves singing, but there was definitely certain attractions in the character's personality that gripped him nonetheless; mainly the fact that the script reminded him of the kind of movie that one of his favourite actors Tom Hanks would get involved with.

Tom Hanks Summarises Dan Brown Series As He Continues To Shoot 'Inferno'


Tom Hanks Dan Brown Ron Howard

Tom Hanks has captivated us with his role as a brooding Harvard professor since 2006, when he appeared in the adaptation of Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code'. Now on to the third film, he returns for another dose of menacing mystery, death-defying adventure and intellectual premise.

Tom Hanks at 2014 BAFTAsTom Hanks will star in Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

'The Da Vinci Code' (Dan Brown's second novel) was a global phenomenon which portrayed Hanks' character Robert Langdon on a quest for the Holy Grail. The following prequel 'Angels & Demons', explored the creation of the universe and conspiracy within mankind. 'Inferno' - the third film directed by Ron Howard - takes another turn completely and sees Langdon with a lot more of a challenge on his hands.

Ron Howard Reveals 'Inferno' Is 'Very Much A Psychological Thriller'


Ron Howard Tom Hanks Dan Brown

Ron Howard returns with more theology based mystery with 'Inferno'; the film adaptation from Dan Brown's series of Robert Langdon novels which will once again star Tom Hanks in the lead role. While you might guess there'll be more puzzles, narrow escapes from death and questions of faith, the director insists there's something a little bit different about this one.

Probably best known for the second of his novel series, 2003's 'The Da Vinci Code', Dan Brown returned with 'Inferno' in 2013 - and there's little surprise that this is another to hit cinema screens. The Golden Globe nominated 'Da Vinci Code' adaptation was followed by a prequel - 'Angels & Demons' - which included themes of science, revenge and global conspiracy, much apart from the Holy Grail quest of the former. But now, with 'Inferno', the depths of the universe are even more closely explored.

Carly Rae Jepsen: Working With Tom Hanks Was 'One Of The Best Days Of My Life'


Carly Rae Jepsen Tom Hanks

If there's one thing Carly Rae Jepsen never expected to be doing, it's watching film legend Tom Hanks mime her lyrics on the set of a music video. But that's exactly what happened with her new tune 'I Really Like You'. It's safe to say, she really likes Tom Hanks.

If you haven't seen the video already, you're the worst. Just kidding. It features the 'Captain Phillips' star going about his day to day business on a cold day in New York, with the hilariously peculiar twist that he's apparently singing the words to Jepsen's new single 'I Really Like You'; the first from her forthcoming studio album. Yes; we immediately imagined Hanks singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' too. If only. And despite his credentials as an amazing double Oscar-winning Hollywood superstar, he was surprisingly easy to bring on board.
