6. New Lincoln Photos Gave Us a Look at Spader, Holbrook, Haley and Pace.
Though it’s difficult to tell whether Spielberg’s take on the sixteenth President will be engaging, or War Horse: The People Version, he’s certainly assembled an impeccable cast. Alongside Daniel Day Lewis are: Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, Hal Holbrook, John Hawkes, James Spader, Gregory Itzin, Jackie Earle Haley, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jared Harris, Lee Pace and S. Epatha Merkerson. If it all turns out a snore, Spielberg should be required to turn in his DGA card.

While there are no plot details as yet, word is out shooting will take place in Los Angeles and feature three leads—one of whom is Johnny Depp. Pfister has made it known he’s interested in Christian Bale playing another of the leads; that may or may not come to fruition based on Bale’s availability. Nolan and his wife, Emma Thomas will both serve as executive producers.
