Steven is keeping buuuuuuuuuusy!
During a recent interview, Steven Spielberg opened up about a bunch of his upcoming projects, and it sounds like he's got some fantastic stuff in the works!
Here's Steven on Lincoln and Robopocalypse (of course!):
"I just finished shooting a movie about Abraham Lincoln staring Daniel Day-Lewis which I am so deeply proud of. But because I am right in the middle of the editing of Lincoln, I’m not really going to speak and talk very much about that until the time is right to talk about it."
"And I’m making a science fiction movie probably in September called Robopocalypse based on Daniel Wilson’s book. It’s a cautionary tale about war between human beings and robots. It’s a big crowd pleaser, I think, a big action popcorn movie with a message. The message is actually in the popcorn! You have to get the popcorn, dig down deep in the bottom and there’ll be a message about what Robopocalypse is really about! And I have a couple of other plans which I don’t want to go into because they’re too far out of the horizon. But there’s a lot of work ahead, a lot of television my company is producing for some of the networks and some of the cable outlets. So I’m busy!"
More from Steven on Tintin sequels, the first of which is being directed by Peter Jackson:
"I’m not going to say which stories have been chosen for Peter Jackson’s sequel because Peter and I agreed that we weren’t going to let that information out yet. The script is now being written. It’s more than one book, but it’s not three books, so that means it’s two books. It’s two and a half books that we’re combining with The Secret of the Unicorn. And Peter will start working on the film this year. When he’s done shooting The Hobbit, he’ll begin his performance capture work with the actors later in 2012, which I’m very excited about. And of course, I’m hoping I’ll be able to direct the third one. I’d love to do the third one because I had so much fun on the first one."
And here's Steven on the fourth Jurassic Park movie:
"I don’t want to talk about Jurassic Park 4 yet – it’s too early – but I can tell you that I’m not directing it. I’m producing it though."
And more from Steven on whether the movie will be a reboot or sequel:
"I can’t say. I will when the time is right, but for now I can’t talk about it."
All sounds VERY exciting! And we're SO glad to hear that JP 4 is still in the works!!!!!!
