Francis Gary Powers was an American pilot whose Central Intelligence Agency U-2 spy plane was shot down while flying a reconnaissance mission over Soviet Union airspace. Initially the United States government tried to cover up the plane’s purpose and mission, but was forced to admit its military nature.

Francis Gary Powers was convicted of espionage and sentenced to three years of imprisonment plus seven years of hard labor. However, he would be released two years later during a prisoner exchange for Soviet officer Rudolf Abel.

The film was shot under the working title of St. James Place. Bridge of Spies stars Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Amy Ryan, and Alan Alda.

Principal photography began on September 8, 2014, in Brooklyn, New York City. Touchstone Pictures will release the film in North America on October 16, 2015, and 20th Century Fox will distribute in the remaining territories.

“I was the guy who was friends with everybody. Yes, I had my core group of friends, but I wasn’t part of a clique that excluded people. I hope they thought I was a nice guy. I tried to be just friendly and outgoing. I was class president. I’m supposed to run my class reunion in 2013.” Austin Stowell.
