It is fair to say that Steven Spielberg is one of the biggest and best directors in Hollywood, while Tom Hanks is one of the most successful actor in the business. The two Hollywood superstars have worked together on a number of occasions already but now, Steven says that he would love to make a new romantic comedy movie with Tom, as he feels the actor was at his best in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.
Spielberg explained, "One of the films that I just think is one of the best things Tom has ever done, is Sleepless in Seattle. I've never made a movie like that before; I would love to do a movie like that with this guy. For me, everything that Tom does is a surprise to me because I don't recognise him."
He added, "I know Tom so well, but I don't recognise the character he plays... and I'm always amazed by that... It was kind of remarkable to see. It's been in every experience I've had with Tom, because each character he plays in all four movies that we did together is totally different." It will be interesting to see whether we do actually get to see these two stars making a new rom-com together.
Most recently, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg worked together on the new Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies, which they have recently been promoting. Bridge of Spies is set to hit the big screen on October 16 in the US, before then opening on November 27 in the UK. Check out the Bridge of Spies trailer, below.
