Spielberg's "Lincoln" May Never Happen

Posted: February 18th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
SpielbergSubmit Comment
Thanks to several interviews with Liam Neeson and playwright Tony Kushner, we know that the Steven Spielberg-directed "Lincoln" is moving forward, with a goal of going into production soon and releasing the film in theaters at the end of this year.

Since Spielberg and DreamWorks have left Paramount and joined Disney, "Lincoln" would end up a Disney project. Jim Hill Media is even reporting that Walt Disney World might revamp its "Hall of Presidents" attraction to feature the voice of Nesson as Lincoln.

But according to The Big Money, "Lincoln" is still at Paramount not Disney. "This past weekend, (Spielberg's) been waiting for executives at Paramount the studio he ditched last year to decide whether to make the film and hire him to direct it," the site reports. "DreamWorks intended to write another big check to retain the right to partner on and produce a separate batch of projects that it had to leave behind at Paramount. In that latter batch was Lincoln. But to stay in the game on Lincoln and the other projects, DreamWorks had to buy two completed films that it made during its time at Paramount (The Lovely Bones and A Thousand Words). And DreamWorks didn't have the money. So now Paramount is deciding whether it wants to make Lincoln."

The site claims Spielberg has shaved the budget on "Lincoln" down to $50 million, but Paramount are still unsure whether they want to proceed with the film because they feel the project is too much in the vein of Spielberg's commercially disappointing historical drama "Amistad."

Great so now kids around the world will assume Lincoln sounded like Qui-Gon. Am I the only one who has a problem with this?

Lincoln has a lot of good film making in it to be something more like Schindler's List meets Nixon than the weak Amistad.
