Steven Spielberg to Next Direct "Harvey"

Posted: August 2nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Steven Spielberg to Next Direct "Harvey"Submit Comment
Some of you may be disappointed, but "Lincoln" is not Steven Spielberg's next project. The director has now announced that he will next helm a contemporary adaptation of Mary Chase's play "Harvey," about a man and his friendship with an invisible six-foot tall rabbit.

"Harvey" was first adapted for the screen in 1950 with James Stewart in the starring role as Elwood P. Dowd. Novelist Jonathan Tropper has written the adaptation for the new version.

No casting is in place yet, but many believe that Tom Hanks will almost inevitably be mentioned as one candidate since he's considered a modern-day Jimmy Stewart and has worked with Spielberg on such films as "The Terminal," "Catch Me If You Can" and "Saving Private Ryan."

Pre-production is to begin immediately, with filming set to start after the first of the year as a joint venture between DreamWorks and Fox.

Maybe Donnie Dark will cameo. Or maybe his rabbit. And the two can get into a fur fight. A psychotic dead dude in a rabbit suit fighing an invisible six foot rabitt. Sounds like something Lucas would write.

Tom Hanks is the man! He would be an awesome choice!

This has it's ups and downs.

Tom hanks would be incredible, I absolutely love this movie and always hoped of remaking it someday.

On the bad side, we have post 21st century spielburg at the helm, and, just like post 98 lucas, he has turned to the movie making dark side. What I really loved about the movie was that the bunny was always sort of imaginative in the sense that you never directly saw Harvey. This is also a joint venture between Dreamworks (who did effects in Transformers, which means we'll probably see the f*cking rabbit, which we aren't supposed to) and Fox ('nuff said).

This movie will suck, not even Hanks can save it.

Not to mention, this movie will probably be set in New York, which is where 99.9999999999999% of remakes are set.

I know the entire geography of New York City, and I've never set foot in the city itself.

Presuming Hanks is playing the rabbit, who is playing the Jimmy Stewart role?

You know that rabbit isn't actually a rabbit but an alien disguised as a rabbit. That will be revealed in the third act ofcourse!
