Spielberg will stand against the Vietnam War

Image Steven Spielberg 's past collaboration with Matt Charman and Mark Platt produced by Spy Bridge , which earned seven nominations for the Oscar " , and Mark Rylance received the coveted statuette for his role in the film. According to the website Deadline , the trio is ready to work together again - on a film about the legendary American correspondent and TV presenter Walter Cronkite.

The project is currently in its early stages of development: Charman is writing the script, and Spielberg has not yet decided if he is ready to take the director's chair.

Walter Cronkite was one of the most influential journalists of his day. The speech in the new film will focus on his reporting on the Vietnam War. The correspondent's first trip to Vietnam was of an introductory nature, and in 1968 he went there for the second time and saw what was happening with different eyes. Returning home, Walter called for an end to the war. It is rumored that then-American President Lyndon Johnson said that by losing Cronkite he also lost the support of the middle class. As a result, Johnson did not nominate himself for a second presidential term.


Steven Spielberg has ambitious plans. At the end of the month his film "The Big and Kind Giant" will be released in USA, and soon the shooting of the tape "Ready Player One" will start. After that, the director will work on the drama The Abduction of Edgardo Mortara and the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise.
