Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' Cold War Thriller Gets a Name

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong The new Steven Spielberg film starring Tom Hanks had long been referred to as the 'Untitled Cold War Thriller,' and during production went under the working title of 'St. James Place.' Now, the movie has been given the official title of 'Bridge of Spies.'

The title was first confirmed by producer Marc Platt in a recent interview. Platt simply said, “I have a film directed by Steven Spielberg starring Tom Hanks coming out called Bridge of Spies.” The film’s title refers to a real bridge that links the outer reaches of former West Berlin to the city centre of Potsdam, previously under the control of East Germany. It was dubbed the “bridge of spies” in the ’60s as American and Soviet intelligence organisations performed prisoner exchanges on its expanse.

Along with the announcement of the movie title came the news that John Williams will provide the score for the film, marking the latest collaboration in his long-running partnership with Spielberg, making it their 27th collaboration.

Bridge of Spies was originally written by Matt Charman, with rewrites by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. The cast also features Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, Alan Alda and Eve Hewson. It will be released by Disney’s Touchstone on the 16th October 2015.
