Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to star in Spielberg-directed drama about the true story of the Pentagon Papers

Really fascinated Spielberg seems to be heading back to a period like 2002 or so where he's banking these big-budget return-to-genre films that take forever and alternating them with serious prestige dramas to hopefully win himself that second Best Picture he probably deserves.

Ready Player One's post-production will take so long that he may very well complete principal photography on two other films in the interim.

I'm only disappointed they haven't cast David straithern as Daniel Ellsberg, I'm assuming Ellsberg isn't even in the film

Maybe James Spader could reprise the role, he played Ellsberg for a cable movie and worked with Spielberg on Lincoln.

Interesting that he's doing this for Fox and not his own company (especially since Ready Player One and the next Indy won't be there either), what's left of it anyway. I'm reading The Men Who Would Be King, a fascinating read on the struggles Dreamworks had from the minute it was conceived.
