There was a lot of internet chatter a couple years ago about Mr Spielberg and Tom Hanks producing another WWII mini series, this time based on the Air War in Europe.

It seems to have gone very quiet. Anyone heard anything to say this project has moved forward to production? (I'd imagine that would be very expensive to make)

I'm a big fan of WWII movies and TV series. The recent release and success of Fury may mean we're in for another round of movies in my favourite genre. (BoB in the sky would have been damn good though!)

Thanks. I can imagine the audio of the planes hammering every speaker now.

Thanks. Sounds like it's still progressing. Probably no casting or filming yet otherwise HBO would have PR'ed it by now. I hope it makes it off the ground!

Here's a sample of what it may look like (this is from an independent movie in production about same by Spielberg - or could be the TV Series renamed 'The Mighty 8th' - conflicting info and nothing confirmed):
