Currently, the number of production projects of Steven Spielberg includes about 15 films in various stages of completion, for four of them the filmmaker is also a director. Therefore, he decided not to waste time on trifles and add one more picture to this already considerable list.|
As Deadline has learned, Spielberg will lead the filming of The Post , a drama based on a true story that took place in 1971. Then the so-called "Pentagon Papers" - a secret study concerning the political and military relations between the United States and Vietnam, were published in the press.
The film, scripted by Liz Hannah , which was acquired by Amy Pascal's company last November, tells the story of military analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who made a partial copy of a collection of documents and gave it to the press. Initially, part of the report was published in The New York Times , but later The Washington Post began a series of its own investigative journalism.
Along with Spielberg , Hollywood stars of the first magnitude also joined the work on the project - Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep will play the main roles in the film. Hanks will play The Washington Post editor-in-chief Benjamin S. Bradley, and Streep will play the editor of Catherine Graham newspaper.
As for Spielberg himself, his fantastic action movie Ready Player One is still in post-production, and for the drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, the director is already selecting the cast. Stephen also plans to lead the war film This Is What I Do: Love and War in a Photographer's Life and the fifth film about the adventures of Indiana Jones .
