Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks Re-team for HBO Air Force Series
Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg put aside ideology to produce "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific," two HBO projects paying tribute to the heroes who beat back the Axis during World War II.
Now, the Oscar winners are re-teaming for a new HBO series, this time celebrating the U.S. Air Force.
While "Band of Brothers" covered the war on land and "The Pacific" the sea, the untitled new project will look at the officers and enlisted men who served in the Eighth Air Force against Germany....
The story will be based in part on Donald L. Miller's “Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany," though other books may provide source material as well, HBO said.
