Steven Spielberg Confirmed To Direct 'War Horse,' But What Would You Like Him To Do?

4 May 2010 12:34 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Reports are circulating that Steven Spielberg has set "War Horse" as his next directing gig. The film is an adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's 1982 young adult novel about an English farm horse who is captured by the Germans on the battlefields of World War I. The horse's path continually intertwines with a young boy from his farm as war rages throughout Europe.

It sounds like a sweet enough tale — just don't get too used to the idea that it's coming anytime soon. While "War Horse" is being touted as Spielberg's next directing gig, the filmmaker is attached to a whole slew of other projects that have yet to come to fruition.

After the jump, we've listed a few of the films currently vying for Spielberg's attention.


Spielberg was set to direct "Harvey," a remake of the classic 1950 film starring Jimmy Stewart as a man with an invisible 6-foot-tall rabbit for his best friend. »
