Hewson - Strange U2 link to new movie project

Eve Hewson is in talks to star opposite Tom Hanks and Amy Ryan in Steven Spielberg's as-yet-untitled Cold War thriller.

Deadline.com reports that production on the film is scheduled to begin in September for an October 2015 release, with New York and Berlin the shooting locations.

The film is based on the true story of CIA attorney James Donovan (Hanks) who was sent to negotiate the release of American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers after he was shot down over Soviet airspace.

The Wire and Gone Baby Gone star Ryan will play Donovan's wife.

There are no details at present on the character Hewson - the daughter of Bono and Ali Hewson - would play.
