Oscar winners Joel and Ethan Coen have boarded Steven Spielberg's Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks to do some additional writing on the project, an individual with knowledge of the film told TheWrap.

Matt Charman wrote the script, which will find Hanks playing James Donovan, a prominent American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to slip behind the Iron Curtain and negotiate the release of Gary Powers, a pilot captured when his U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia.

The Cold War thriller is shaping up to be Spielberg's next movie, as DreamWorks expects to start production in September.
