Spielberg, Streep, and Hanks to Team for Pentagon Papers Drama
The actors are teaming up with another cinematic great, director Steven Spielberg, on a historical drama about The Washington Post's coverage of the Pentagon Papers, which detailed the extent of the United States' role in the Vietnam War. Fox and Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment will co-finance the project.
The Post will mark the fifth collaboration between Spielberg and Hanks after Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can, The Terminal and Bridge of Spies, while Streep has also worked with Spielberg in the past, having voiced the blue fairy in A.I.
Streep, who is coming off an Oscar nominee for her role in the movie "Florence Foster Jenkins", will play Graham while Hanks will play Bradlee. Spielberg is in post-production on Ready Player One.

The Post started publishing excerpts of the Vietnam documents on June 18, 1971, a few days after a federal judge ordered the New York Times to stop printing the papers, which had been furnished by RAND Corporation analyst Daniel Ellsberg.
The Pentagon Papers was the name of a classified study which revealed unreported facts about a secret escalation of more than 500,000 troops by 1968. The Washington Post grabbed the baton (Ellsberg gave the study to Bradlee) and published more revelations from the 47-volume study. The justices ruled 6-3 that the government failed to prove a harm to national security and that publication was justified by the First Amendment.
If the reported casting holds up, Hanks will be at least the fourth different actor to play Bradlee.
