Gremlins Reboot Could Be In The Works
The idea of rebooting Gremlins is not a new one and Vulture says that what's really been holding up another movie is the idea of getting Spielberg involved, which has "always proved too daunting a financial prospect." While that very well could end up being the same issue that occurs with this effort, people close to the situation say it could work out this time.

Read The Letter Daniel Day-Lewis Wrote To Steven Spielberg Turning Down Lincoln
At last night's New York FIlm Critics Circle awards dinner, both Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg were on hand to celebrate their film Lincoln, which had won the Best Actor prize for Day-Lewis and Best Screenplay for Tony Kushner.

Anne Hathaway Confirmed For Spielberg's Robopocalypse
Hathaway’s a fine choice for an action/sci-fi thriller. Drew Goddard will be writing the film (at the moment), an as Empire points out, there are two key female roles in the story: A U.S. Senator and a “grunt.” But things can change from novel to screenplay, and so Hathaway – or whomever is hired – will have to be flexible.

Steven Spielberg Won't Direct Star Wars, In Case You Were Hoping
It never really seemed a serious possibility, but in the week or so since Disney announced that they had acquired Lucasfilm, Steven Spielberg's name has been one of the most frequently seen on the zillion shortlists of "Who Should Direct Star Wars VII?" It makes sense on some levels, of course. Spielberg and George Lucas are longtime friends

Steven Spielberg And Daniel Day-Lewis Delve Into The History And The Mind Of Lincoln
As important as the story of the 16th president is, the reason why people will go to see Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is because of the pedigree of the director and the performance of its star, Daniel Day-Lewis. But what’s impressive about the film is that once the lights have gone out and the projection has started, you are completely sucked into the 19th century world that the duo creates.

Abraham Lincoln Needs Votes In International Lincoln Trailer
The clip maps out the battles in Spielberg’s movie, and I’m not talking about Gettysburg or Antietum. Instead, Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis) risked his popularity to push through an unpopular amendment to the U.S. Constitution abolishing slavery, even before the Civil War had been decided.

Steven Spielberg Reveals Why He Wore A Suit On Set And Much More About Lincoln

Review: Steven Spielberg's Lincoln Premieres At NYFF, And Tommy Lee Jones Runs Away With It
A sold-out crowd packed the Alice Tully Hall at the aptly named Lincoln Center tonight for the New York Film Festival Secret Screening that pretty much everyone knew at that point was Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.

Why Do We Care So Much About Abraham Lincoln's Voice Anyway?
when we first hear Lincoln's voice in the new trailer, around the minute mark, it's practically as high-pitched as Truman Capote's. When he explodes and shouts at the men in the room, they seemed shocked and so does he-- this is a tall, gangly man who's always used his words instead of his fists, and a soft voice to prove it. Given Day-Lewis's reputation for research there's no doubt his take is the most historically accurate
