Last week, we told you that despite picking up new projects, Steven Spielberg has yet to decide what he is going to direct next. Well, we might have a winner, by way of his old pal Tom Hanks. Hanks and Spielberg are developing a thriller about an American attorney who works with the CIA during the Cold War to go behind enemy lines to negotiate the release of a captured spy. Hanks will star. Spielberg is considering directing. But who knows with this guy. Maybe he’ll just make Close Encounters of the Third Kind 2: Close Encounters of the Richard Kind.
