Now, THR have revealed that it is happening and due to be called Masters Of The Air, which is based on Donald L. Miller’s non-fiction book: Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.

It’s perfect ground for Hanks and Spielberg, who have an extensive history with such source material and I’m sure they’ll want to portray it in the right way, as both legends have a lot of respect and understanding for WWII. Gary Goetzman will join the two in producing, as he co-owns PlaytoneTom Hanks production company – together with Amblin Television for HBO.
