Holy shizzballs, you guys!
Spielberg's so-called "dream project" has always been Lincoln, and actors are losing their minds over trying to be a part of it.
Don't believe us? Let's just list the ones we know:
Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, John Hawkes, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill and Joseph Cross.
They're. All. In. Negotiations.
Not only that, but DDL (Lincoln) is going to be JGL's (Robert Todd) dad in the movie. Also, apparently, if you have a three part name you're just automatically on the negotiation list. LOLz!
The story follows "the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War.”
Which sounds absolutely brilliant to us, with such an amazing cast!
The world will be getting at least TWO slavery-based movies next year, unless more are announced, with the news of Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained coming to awesomely badass fruition!
We're PUMPED. How about U?
