Gordon-Levitt Talks To Tarantino About Django Unchained; Premium Rush Moves to August 2012

21 October 2011 11:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to join Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained (check out the already awesome cast). His schedule is tight but having Premium Rush moved from a January to August 2012 release should help, as Tarantino intends to start shooting Django in New Orleans in January, when Gordon-Levitt would have been busy doing Rush press. With this film, plus Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln coming up, Gordon-Levitt shouldn't be too discouraged if he doesn't manage to build the momentum necessary for a 50/50 Oscar nomination. He's just getting started. »

Spielberg's Future Projects News

29 September 2011 1:45 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In the new issue of Empire, out today, we have an exclusive interview with Steven Spielberg on the subject of The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn*. But while we were chatting to the former Empire editor and uber-director, we asked a little about two of his future projects, Lincoln and Robopocalypse.Of the Presidential biopic, this is what Spielberg had to say: "We start shooting in October. Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team Of Rivals is much too big a book to be a movie, so the Lincoln story only takes place in the last few months of his Presidency and life. I was interested in how he ended the war through all the efforts of his generals...but more importantly how he passed the 13th Amendment into constitutional law. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war powers act and could have been struck down by any court after the war ended. »

Jackie Earle Haley To Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’

21 September 2011 8:06 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Jackie Earle Haley is set for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, playing the role of Alexander Stephens. Stephens was vice president of the Confederate States during the Civil War and a nemesis of Lincoln’s slavery reform agenda. He is remembered for an infamous speech in which he said that slavery was the “natural condition of blacks and the cornerstone of the Confederacy.” The Spielberg-directed film shoots this fall and DreamWorks is eyeing a late 2012 release date, after the presidential elections. Daniel Day-Lewis plays Abraham Lincoln, Sally Field plays Mary Todd, and Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt also star. Haley, whose career was resuscitated with his Oscar-nominated performance in Little Children, is currently in London shooting the Tim Burton-directed Dark Shadows for Warner Bros. Haley is repped by CAA and managed by Leslie Rice. »
