Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are going back to war as the producers of a new cable TV miniseries about the World War Two battles between America and Japan.

The movie-star pals, who joined forces for Saving Private Ryan and acclaimed miniseries Band of Brothers, will revisit the Second World War again in The Pacific.

According to trade paper Daily Variety, filming on the ambitious project will start in Melbourne, Australia, where many U.S. troops were stationed, this summer. The miniseries is set to air in 2009.

The son of war historian Stephen Ambrose, whose writings inspired the Band of Brothers series, will serve as a consultant on The Pacific.
