On Thursday, Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt unveiled the first official teaser for Spielberg's long-gestating "Lincoln" biopic from DreamWorks and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
"Lincoln was a monumental president and we treat him as a man, not a monument," Spielberg said during Google's special Hangout presentation.
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, "Lincoln" is based on historian Doris Kearns Goodwin's book about Abraham Lincoln and his presidential Cabinet, "Team of Rivals." The film's dramatic focus, Spielberg recently told Variety, is on the work in the Lincoln White House, the efforts by Lincoln to steer events, and the obstacles in his way. Sally Fields, Tommy Lee Jones and Jared Hess co-star in the film.
"Lincoln," adapted for the bigscreen by Tony Kushner, arrives in theaters Nov. 9.
While we still don’t know what Daniel Day Lewis’ “Lincoln” sounds like, Google Play has unveiled a glimpse of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming drama in a preview of the pic’s trailer, which Spielberg, himself, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will introduce in a special event Wednesday.
David Oyelowo, who plays Ira Clark, narrates the 44 second clip, using words from Lincoln’s infamous Gettysberg Address.
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Gordon-Levitt, Sally Fields and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln” arrives in limited release November 9 before expanding wide Nov. 16.
In this photo, Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga appear in rom-com "Admissions," which just wrapped production in Spokane, Wash., and will be released early 2013. Pic centers on a relationship that develops between two strangers over the course of a single day. Farmiga portrays a free-spirited mom who takes her daughter on a walking tour of a small college, where they encounter Garcia's character, a buttoned-up heart surgeon, and his son. The two decide to divert from the tour and explore the campus together; the result is a surprising romance.
Adam Rodgers directed from a script he co-wrote with Glenn German. Wander and FBI are handling international distribution and will be selling “Admissions” at Toronto.
Paramount's "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" -- one of several upcoming pics taking twists on a classic story -- toplines Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the fairytale siblings, set 15 years after the pair kill the witch who kidnapped them. The siblings have trained as bounty hunters in search of witches. "Witch Hunters" was recently pushed back to January, 2013 to capitalize on Renner's turns in "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Avengers."
"The Iceman" is hitting the fest circuit hard this Fall with premieres scheduled for Venice, Toronto and Telluride. Pic, starring Michael Shannon as real-life mafia hitman Richard Kuklinksi, is a "home run" according to Variety critic Justin Chang. Directed by Ariel Vroman, "The Iceman" also stars James Franco, Ray Liotta and Winona Ryder.
Martin Scorsese has issued a response to producer Cecchi Gori's lawsuit, filed Wednesday, which claims the Oscar-winner failed to direct "Silence," the long gestating adaptation of the Shusako Endo novel. Cecchi Gori Pictures claims Scorsese agreed to direct the bigscreen drama after completing "Hugo" this past year but after the helmer announced "The Wolf of Wall Street" as his next film, Gori took legal action against Scorsese and his production company Sikelia Productions.
Scorsese's reps call the lawsuit "absurd" and a "media stunt."
Read the full statement:
“It is shocking to us that the lawyers for Cecchi Gori Pictures would file a suit pursuing such absurd claims considering the amicable working relationship existing between Martin Scorsese and the principals of Cecchi Gori Pictures.The claims asserted are completely contradicted by, inconsistent with, and contrary to the express terms of an agreement entered into by the parties last year.
The lawsuit filing on the eve of Mr. Scorsese starting another picture has all the earmarks of a media stunt.
Mr. Scorsese is confident that he will prevail in court should Cecchi Gori Pictures actually pursue this meritless action.”
Disney and DreamWorks today unveiled the first poster for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln." Pic, set for release a Nov. 16 release, has been eyed as an awards contender ever since two-time Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis signed on to play Honest Abe.
Prolific director Tony Scott, who died Sunday at the age of 68, recently talked about working on the set of his last two completed features: "Unstoppable" and "The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3."
