'Pirates of the Caribbean' Will Sail Into Theaters July 2017

4 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Grab your eyeliner and whimsical headscarves, because the dread pirate Jack Sparrow will be hitting the high seas in 2017. It seems like just yesterday that Johnny Depp debuted his Keith Richards swagger for "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, who co-directed the oceanic adventure "Kon-Tiki" in 2012), will take a crack at directing "Pirates 5," which is tentatively named "Dead Men Tell No Tales." Jeff Nathanson, who also penned "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "Rush Hour 3," and "The Terminal," is working on the script. "Pirates 5" was initially slated for 2015, but "The Lone Ranger" certainly took a bite out of Disney's bottom line. The bad press and even worse reviews of "The Lone Ranger" definitely left a bad taste in movie-goers' mouths, so perhaps it was wise to push off "Pirates" another year.

The collateral damage of Tom Hanks movies

14 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To get to a happy ending in a Tom Hanks movie, an innocent character has to pay the price. Here's the proof...

Feature

With the best part of $10bn banked for his movies across his career, Tom Hanks remains one of the biggest and most interesting movie stars on the planet. His most recent performance in Captain Phillips, for instance, was comfortably one of his best. And looking back on Hanks’ career, the path of increased boldness and range is easy to chart.

Furthermore, he’s achieved his successes without public meltdowns, without signs of turning into a diva, and without putting us through many poor films at all. The man is a hero.

Well, to everyone but certain characters in his movies. For, on rewatching Big, we became aware of an alarming trend: that there tends to be a character in a Tom Hanks movie whose role is to »

Coen Brothers Are Rewriting Steven Spielberg's Cold War Drama

21 May 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month we learned that Steven Spielberg had finally chosen his next project to follow-up the 2012 Best Picture nominee Lincoln, and it would be a Cold War drama that reteams him with his Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal and Saving Private Ryan star Tom Hanks. This was confirmed after Spielberg also decided to direct an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg right after he finished this still untitled drama about James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers, who was held and interrogated by the Kgb and imprisoned for espionage. But who's rewriting the script? THR reports it will be none other than filmmaking sibling duo Joel and Ethan Coen who will rewrite the true story screenplay, and the hope is for the project to be ready to shoot this fall in Europe. However, it sounds like there might »

Coen Brothers writing Steven Spielberg’s Cold War Film

21 May 2014 2:42 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Steven Speilberg is a busy chap. A very busy chap indeed. That sounds like the start of some movie orientated nursery rhyme. Anyway, with Joel and Ethan Coen having been hired to write a new draft of a yet untitled Cold War story, the Jurassic Park director is now set to take on this movie next and following on from that, expect his ass in the director's chair of Roald Dahl’s The Bfg, amidst a plethora of other projects, including Robopocalypse (which has gone back to the rewrite chamber) This unnamed cold war thriller is based on a true story, following the tale of James Donovan an American lawyer who was enlisted by the CIA and negotiate the release of a U-2 spy plane bomber pilot that was shot down over Russia.

Coen Brothers to Script Tom Hanks-Steven Spielberg’s Cold War Drama

DreamWorks’ Cold War project — with Steven Spielberg directing and Tom Hanks starring — is heating up with Joel and Ethan Coen on board to write the script.

Coen Brothers to Pen Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ Untitled Cold War Thriller

20 May 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well, now this is interesting.  Remember that Cold War-era thriller in development with Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks attached?  Now it seems as if Joel and Ethan Coen will draft the screenplay.  That's a lot of Oscar-winning talent right there, enough to land the project on an incredibly early awards watch long before it even has a title.  The picture aims to tell the true story of James Donovan, "an attorney who was thrust into the center of the Cold War when he negotiated with the Kgb for the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers."  Perhaps the news that the Coens are taking a crack at Matt Charman's initial script will add enough heat to the project to make it Spielberg's next directorial feature.  Hit the jump for more. THR reports that the Coens will turn in a draft for the untitled Cold War-era thriller set up at DreamWorks. »

Next Two Steven Spielberg Projects will be ‘The Bfg’ and Untitled Cold War Film

26 April 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

So what happened with “Robopocalypse” and “Montezuma?”

TheWrap is reported veteran director Steven Spielberg set aside those two projects for an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s novel “The Bfg” and an untitled Cold War film with Tom Hanks attached.

A DreamWorks rep said the Cold War thriller is the next project to be shot in the fall. It is likely he will shoot “The Bfg” after the Cold War film in 2015.

Hanks will play James Donovan, an attorney recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to negotiate the release of Gary Powers, a captured U-2 spy plane pilot that was shot down over the Soviet Union. The article also mentioned Hanks cleared his fall schedule to shoot this movie.

This will be the fourth collaboration between Hanks and Spielberg after “Saving Private Ryan, “Catch Me If You Can,” and “The Terminal.”

Matt Charman wrote the screenplay with Marc Platt producing the film. »

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks Team Up for Cold War Thriller

22 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks work really well together, and they tend to develop amazing projects together. Some of those projects include Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal, Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, and The Pacific. They are teaming up again to bring us a film set during the Cold War. Hanks is attached to star in the project, and Spielberg is in talks to direct. 

The film will be based on the true story revolving around "James Donovan (Hanks), a prominent American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to slip behind the Iron Curtain to negotiate the release of a pilot captured when his U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia."

I'd love to see Hanks and Spielberg work together again, and I don't see why they wouldn't on a project like this. Spielberg has yet to choose his next project and has »

Tom Hanks To Star In Spielberg’s Cold War Thriller

22 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg – it’s a match made in celluloid heaven, and it looks like this duo may be working together again in Spielberg’s as yet untitled Cold War biopic thriller.

If all goes well Hanks will play attorney James Donovan. It seems Donovan was one of the movers and shakers of the twentieth century – he prosecuted major Nazi figures at Nuremberg, defended an important Russian spy and negotiated with Fidel Castro for the release of captured soldiers after the Bay of Pigs.

Spielberg’s project will follow Donovan’s negotiations to secure the release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.

Of course the promise of Spielberg and Hanks will have the movie industry salivating. Their work together on Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, Catch Me If You Can and Band of Brothers was Hollywood gold.

Matt Charman is writing the script and Marc Platt will produce. »
