Steven Spielberg found a replacement for Liam Neeson in the movie about Abraham Lincoln. According to a press release from DreamWorks studio, Daniel Day-Lewis will play the role of the 16th US President. Recall that the actor has already played a character of this era in Martin Scorsese's movie Gangs of New York.
It is assumed that the shooting of the movie will begin in autumn 2011 with an eye to the premiere in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Spielberg planned to movie the biography of one of the most revered presidents of the United States many years ago, but for various reasons the project was constantly postponed.
Neeson was listed as the leading actor from the very beginning, but in the end he was forced refuse to participate due to employment in other projects.
