- The main cast for Steven Spielberg's "The Papers" has been announced today and adds some fine talent to work along side the great Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Welshman Matthew Rhys, Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, Jesse Plemons, David Cross, Alison Brie, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Zach Woods will all have the lucky task of being directed by Mr Spielberg in his latest project which will tell the story of Washington Post’s decision to publish the classified Pentagon Papers in 1971.
Tom Hanks will play hard-charging Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, with Streep handling the role of iron-willed publisher Katharine Graham
The film will be co-financed by Fox and Amblin Entertainment. Fox will handle domestic distribution; international will be Amblin, through its output deals with Universal, eOne, Reliance and others. With the Fox deal, Spielberg reunites with chairman/CEO Stacey Snider, his longtime partner at DreamWorks. This marks the fifth pairing of Spielberg with Hanks, after Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal and Bridge of Spies.
Remarkably the movie is set to be released at the end of the year to a limited release with a full release early next year.
