Amy Ryan Joins Spielberg Thriller
Amy Ryan will play the wife of Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg’s currently untitled Cold War thriller.
Hanks’ character is James Donovan, an attorney who is sent by the CIA to negotiate the release of an American U2 pilot.
The project, slated to shoot in Washington and Berlin, will begin production at the beginning of September. Alan Alda, Eve Heweson and Billy Magnusson are currently in talks to join the production.
Spielberg sits in the director’s chair, while Marc Platt and Kristie Macosco Krieger serve as producers. Joel and Ethan Cohen have scripted the pic, which is based on an original script by Matt Charman.
Ryan was most recently seen in the true crime thriller Devil’s Knot.
