OSCAR winner Catherine Zeta Jones has landed a starring role in STEVEN SPIELBERG's new film alongside Hollywood heavyweight Tom Hanks.

The CHICAGO star has been offered the part of a flight-attendant who befriends Hanks' VICTOR, a Balkan immigrant who finds himself stuck in limbo at an airport after his passport is voided.

OCEANS'S ELEVEN's Bernie Mac is also in talks to play a baggage handler, who becomes involved in the airport's illegal trade.
