The film will start shooting in September in Berlin and New York with Fox and DreamWorks co-financing. The US release has been set for October 16, 2015, reported Variety.
Joel and Ethan Coen are writing the script for the project which is based on the true story of James Donovan, whom Hanks will portray.
