Spielberg Casts Williams for Film Based on Childhood

 

While some might have been worried that filmmaker Steven Spielberg would fall into generic cinema with his next film being a remake of West Side Story, his next project shows him doing perhaps his most personal project in years. So personal that he will in fact co-write the story for the first time since A.I. Course, understandable...given it's based on his own life.


It's been confirmed today that Spielberg's next project will be loosely based on his own childhood growing up in Arizona. To get an idea of the creative direction of the story, this film's announcement was coupled with the story that Michelle Williams was in negotiations to play a role inspired by Spielberg's mother though it was specifically confirmed her character will have “a separate and original voice”. In addition, the narrative is expected to span several years with confirmation that casting is looking for child actors that will multiple age levels of the same characters.


Little else has been announced beyond Tony Kushner serving as the co-writer for the script alongside Spielberg. Kushner actually wrote the script for West Side Story along with having written the script for Spielberg's previous films Munich (2005) and Lincoln (2012). Shooting will kick off this summer with the film expected to be released sometime in 2022. Stay tuned!

Yep, Stevie lost his mojo along the years and started making more oscar bait dramas, this one sounds like another bait. Watched the first 3 episodes of Marvel's Iron Fist season 1 and I must say I'm presently surprised so far. It's a bit slow and light on action but I like the semi spiritual tone and the acting is decent all around. Not much PC which is always a blessing is modern time.

Maybe it was trashed because it has so many white characters. Not progressive enough.

Sounds like another Spielberg bomb. Sad.
