Steven Spielberg's next two films have been slated for October 2015 and July 2016.

DreamWorks announced Monday that an untitled Cold War spy thriller from Spielberg will open Oct. 16 of next year, and "The BFG" is planned for July 1, 2016.

The Cold War thriller is to star Tom Hanks as James Donovan, an attorney negotiating the return of an American pilot from the Soviet Union in 1960. "The BFG" is a live-action adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1982 children's book.

The 67-year-old Spielberg is juggling numerous producing jobs in television and film. His last directed movie was 2012's Oscar-winning "Lincoln" starring Daniel Day-Lewis. The film won best production design and best actor for Day-Lewis.
