Hanks co-directs the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers with Steven Spielberg. The show chronicles the 101st Airborne Division thought training, Europe, and the end of World War II.
What we’re doing with Band of Brothers is trying to put it into human terms, so it is not just a flickering, black and white myth on a screen, it is a resonant story. I want the audience to recognize themselves in these men. They’re not just mythic heroes.
