War Stories: Spielberg's 'Bridge of Spies' Tells True Story of Cold War Espionage

Get an inside look at Spielberg's latest espionage thriller, complete with interviews with the director and cast themselves.

 

If you're looking forward to Steven Spielberg's new film "Bridge of Spies," you won't want to miss the FOX Business Network this weekend.

During Saturday and Sunday nights' editions of "War Stories With Oliver North," FBN will be giving viewers an inside look at Spielberg's latest espionage thriller, complete with interviews with the director and cast themselves.

Based on the true story of a Cold War incident, "Bridge of Spies" tells the tale of a lawyer (played by Tom Hanks) who is assigned to secure the release of an American spy from the Soviet Union in 1960 — but its themes of hacking, spying and secrecy are as relatable today as they ever were, according to Spielberg.

"Everything that goes on today, that is exactly what was happening in the '50s and '60s, in this Cold War," he tells FBN correspondent Michael Tammero.
