An as-yet-untitled Cold War thriller written by the Coen brothers and starring Tom Hanks, and an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG which Melissa Mathison will pen. Those are the next two films on Steven Spielberg's slate, after months of speculation regarding which of the many projects he's considering he'll elect as his follow-up to Lincoln. Currently, the Cold War thriller is scheduled for the 16th of October next year, with The BFG set for the 1st of July 2016. That's a typically quick turnaround for Spielberg, though normally the summer blockbuster precedes the late-year awards contender. So far out, though, and with two such ambitious films to be made, one can expect these dates to change at some point in the future.
