The movie has just started shooting and is due to be released in Ireland in January next year.

Director Spielberg has recruited a strong ensemble that also includes Alison Brie, David Cross, Sarah Paulson, Tracy Letts and Bradley Whitford.

The script, written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, tells the story of the Washington Post’s quest to release details of the ‘Papers’, secret documents that exposed the Government’s aim of escalating the Vietnam War in 1971.

Hanks will play the newspaper’s editor Ben Bradlee with Streep starring as publisher Kay Graham.
