Steven Spielberg is busy, busy, busy. The director is currently readying his next movie, the untitled Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks which will be released this fall (and which we think will be an Oscar contender). After that, he's got "The B.F.G." due in 2016, and among the potential projects on his plate is "Indiana Jones 5," possibly with Chris Pratt, and the Ptsd military drama "Thank You For Your Service.” Now, he's got another military movie brewing with one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood attached. Deadline reports that Jennifer Lawrence will star in Spielberg's adaptation of the memoir “It’s What I Do: A Photographer’s Life Of Love and War.” Photojournalist Lynsey Addario penned the book about her time in Afghanistan, Africa and Iraq.

Update: The ink hasn't even dried on Netflix's latest deal and already four major theater chains have boycotted the day-and-date release of "Beasts of No Nation." AMC, Regal, Carmike and Cinemark have stated that they will not show the film without a 90-day window between its theatrical and streaming premieres. According to Variety, Tim League's indie chain Alamo Drafthouse will, however, be screening the film when it opens simultaneously in theaters and on Netflix later this year. The Texas-based exhibitor fared well screening "Snowpiercer," which had a very short window, last Summer. The four exhibitors that have boycotted the film so far are the same chains that shunned the "Crouching Tiger" sequel when in late 2014 Netflix announced its imminent day-and-date release.
