In the last year or so, Steven Spielberg has been attached to more films than a projector reel. Among the films he’s considered as his follow-up to The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, which is now in post-production, are (among others):
Spielberg has finally landed on his next project, You’d imagine if he passed up all the above opportunities, the project he chose is going to be huge, right? Spectacularly so, huh?
Not so much. Spielberg’s next film will be War Horse, the adaptation of the Michael Morpurgo novel about a boy and his horse. It’s set against the “sweeping backdrop of The Great War” and the storyline “charts the extraordinary friendship between a boy and a horse who are separates but whose fates continue to intertwine over the course of World Word I.”
A boy and his horse movie? I think I’d just as soon see the further degradation of the Indiana Jones franchise.
