Two of Hollywood's biggest stars are filming a movie at Beale Air Force Base about a U.S. Spy Plane that was shot down during the Cold War.

According to Entertainment Weekly, director Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks are in the process of filming a movie about recovering a captured pilot from behind enemy lines. Hanks is playing a lawyer who is working on behalf of the CIA to secretly negotiate the release of CIA U-2 spy plane pilot Francis Gary Powers after he was shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960.

Beale Air Force Base Officials have confirmed that Spielberg and a crew have been filming on the base for nearly a week.

While no sightings of Hanks have been reported, a few lucky North State residents claim they have seen Spielberg.

Hanks and Spielberg have previously worked together on Hollywood blockbusters like Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me If You Can.

According to Entertainment Weekly the new film does not have a title yet, but it does have an October 2015 release date.
