    Twentieth Century FOX and Amblin Entertainment’s riveting drama inspired by actual events, THE PAPERS, began principal photography in New York on Tuesday, May 30th. Academy Award winning director Steven Spielberg helms a powerhouse cast including Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in THE PAPERS. In June 1971 The New York Times, the Washington Post and the nation’s major newspapers took a brave stand for freedom of speech and reported on the Pentagon Papers, the massive cover-up of government SECRETS that spanned four decades and four US Presidents. At the time, the Post’s Katherine Graham (Streep) was still finding her footing as the country’s first female newspaper publisher, and Ben Bradlee (Hanks), the paper’s volatile, driven editor, was trying to enhance the stature of the struggling, local paper. Together, the two formed an unlikely team, as they were forced to come together and make the bold decision to support The New York Times and fight the Nixon Administration’s unprecedented attempt to restrict the first amendment.

    The script was written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer and features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford and Zach Woods.

    An Amblin Entertainment production, THE PAPERS will be distributed domestically by Twentieth Century FOX and will be in select theaters December 22nd, going wide January 12th, 2018.

    Wait, so Josh Singer also wrote the script? Wasn’t he the co-writer of Spotlight?

    Yes, he is. Josh Singer could well win his 2nd Oscar in 3 years.

    If they expanded anyone’s role, I’m sure it’s Sarah Paulson’s….Assuming she plays Tom Hanks’ wife.

    I hope so because I have been waiting for her big leap to film. It has been on the rise for quite awhile.

    The thought that Sarah Paulson would be playing Tom Hanks’ wife never crossed my mind, I assumed she’d be part of the team at the Washington Post and maybe garner a nomination the way that Rachel McAdams did for Spotlight.

    Wonder who’d they’d push for supporting actor, Stuhlberg is going to go with Call Me By Your Name. I do want Spielberg to be able to get an acting nomination in all the categories, especially when David O’Russell had managed to pull that off twice with SLP and Hustle.

    I thought the same thing!! All they need now is Billy Bob Thornton. Now that would be great.
