Saving Private Ryan 1998 Production:-
In 1994, Robert Rodat’s wife gave him the bestseller D-Day: June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II by historian Stephen Ambrose. While reading the book during an early morning walk in a small New Hampshire village, Rodat was “struck by a monument dedicated to those who had died in.
Various wars, particularly because of the repeated last names of brothers who were killed in action”. He was inspired by an actual family in Ambrose’s book named the Nilands, which had lost two sons in the war and was thought to have lost a third who was “snatched” out of Normandy by the War Department.
Rodat proposed the pitch to producer Mark Gordon. Gordon then pitched Rodat’s idea to Paramount Pictures, whose executives liked the idea and commissioned Rodat to write the script. Carin Sage at Creative Artists Agency read Rodat’s script and made Steven Spielberg.
Who was one of the agency’s clients, aware of it? At the same time, Spielberg, who was at the time establishing DreamWorks Pictures, picked up the script and became interested in the film.

Spielberg had already demonstrated his interest in World War II themes with the films 1941, Empire of the Sun, Schindler’s List, and the Indiana Jones series. Spielberg later co-produced the World War II-themed television miniseries Band of Brothers and its counterpart The Pacific with Tom Hanks.
When asked about this by American Cinematographer, Spielberg said, “I think that World War II is the most significant event of the last 100 years; the fate of the baby boomers and even Generation X was linked to the outcome. Beyond that, I’ve just always been interested in World War II.
