Steven Spielberg has expressed an unlikely interest in shooting a romantic comedy with Tom Hanks.
The frequent collaborators first teamed up for 1998’s “Saving Private Ryan” and they are currently promoting their fourth project together, “Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies”, reported Time.
However, Spielberg, 68, said he would like to take a break from dramas and tackle a whole new film genre after branding Hanks’ 1993 classic “Sleepless in Seattle”.
“One of the films that I just think is one of the best things Tom has ever done, is Sleepless in Seattle,” he told US breakfast show “Good Morning America”.
“I’ve never made a movie like that before; I would love to do a movie like that with this guy.”

The pair’s other movies include 2002’s “Catch Me If You Can” and 2004 comedy-drama “The Terminal”. The moviemaker said working with Hanks is always a delight because the actor is such a chameleon.
“For me, everything that Tom does is a surprise to me because I don’t recognize him.”
