    Default All Things:Steven Spielberg

    Well, we got a lot of director threads going here and Spielberg is in a real fertile period right now, so...here ya go

    Steven Spielberg Will Part The Red Sea With A Moses Movie!
    Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    So... LINCOLN, then ROBOPOCALYPSE, and then... Moses? Yes, according to Deadline - Steven Spielberg is close to directing a film based on the life of Moses called GODS AND KINGS, which is being described as a BRAVEHEART-like telling of the Exodus story. The idea of Spielberg doing this almost feels inevitable, doesn't it? Don't get me wrong, I'll see anything the Beard makes for the rest of his life, but it's not like this is a story we haven't seen before. But as Spielberg gets up there in age, it's possible he wants to go out with an epic film like this.

    Apparently, according to the article, this will not be in 3D. Warner Brothers wants Spielberg to direct this film with a sense of reality, a la SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Does this mean that we'll get a thousand extras instead of CGI? Will this be Spielberg's real David Lean movie? (And yes, I'm aware that Cecil DeMille directed the original TEN COMMANDMENTS.) It's a long way from when the Neary family was watching TEN COMMANDMENTS on television in CLOSE ENCOUNTERS to actually making a film based on Moses' life.

    So... casting, anyone? Who plays Moses? Who plays Pharaoh? Will this be the gritty epic that Warner Brothers wants? Although I'm not much for Biblical stories, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to see Spielberg tackle this one. Genuinely fascinated about this movie.

    I still wish Liam Neeson hadn't left the project.

    Anybody else who thinks they might have a shot at the Best Actor oscar should just quit now or try to have the release of their movie delayed.

    Steven Spielberg Circling Adaptation of Osama Bin Laden Drama NO EASY DAY | Collider

    According to the NY Post [via The Playlist], Bissonnette has taken the project to HBO and DreamWorks, and the latter currently seems to be the more promising of the two opportunities. However, it’s worth noting that since Spielberg is an executive at DreamWorks, he won’t necessarily get in the director’s chair. He may simply come on board as a producer. If Spielberg does get involved as a director, and sticks to giving Robopocalypse first priority, we won’t see the adaptation of No Easy Day until post-2014.

    There’s also the issue that adapting the book could run into legal difficulties since Bissonette should have kept certain aspects of the mission classified in the interest of national security, and operations chief Adm. Bill McRaven has said the author could be prosecuted for publishing this information.

    Here’s the synopsis for No Easy Day:

    For the first time anywhere, the first-person account of the planning and execution of the Bin Laden raid from a Navy Seal who confronted the terrorist mastermind and witnessed his final moments.

    From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group–commonly known as SEAL Team Six– has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

    No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.

    In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military. Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance. With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11. In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.

    But, anyhoo, speaking of Daniel Day-Lewis is it bad that I never saw There Will be Blood? :(

    But I did see The Last of the Mohicans.

    And I just read that he is partially Jewish, bitchin!
