The film The Post will focus on The Washington Post’s role in publishing the controversial study about America’s role in the Vietnam War; Tom Hanks will play Post‘s editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep will play publisher Kay Graham.

Spielberg will also produce, along with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger. Fox and Amblin Entertainment will co-finance the feature, with Fox handling domestic distribution and Amblin taking on international duties.

This collaboration of talents seems very promising, doesn’t it?
