Filmmaker Steven Spielberg will direct Swiss Army Man the actors Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep – the three winners of Oscar awards – in a film about the legal battle of The Washington Post to publish the Pentagon Papers. In 1971, when that American newspaper and The New York Times published the document Relations between the United States and Vietnam, 1945-1967: a study by the State Department, the government of President Richard Nixon did everything possible for the press to stop insisting with the secret text.

In The Post, as the movie will be called, Hanks will play director Ben Bradlee and Streep to editor Katharine Graham, according to Deadline. “A timely film about the vital role of the press in maintaining government honesty,” the Hollywood publication called this reconstruction of the challenge that Bradlee and Graham presented to the federal government to confirm their right to publish the documents that Daniel Ellsberg, an official of the Pentagon, had withdrawn clandestinely.

The Pentagon Papers – now declassified – It revealed the way in which the Lyndon B. Johnson government had lied to Congress about the Vietnam War, extending the fight while claiming that it had ceased. The anti-war feeling isolated much more the Nixon government, which continued the war as protests increased throughout the United States.

According to the original source, the film will The Light Between Oceans be co-financed by Fox and Amblin Entertainment, which will deal respectively with local and international distribution. Spielberg, who will be a producer with Amy Pascal (former co-director of Sony Picture) and Kristie Macosko Krieger, will once again collaborate with Stacey Snider, who previously participated in DreamWorks, the filmmaker’s company, and is now part of Fox.
