Spielberg's next Robopocalypse? Also wants to direct Edgardo Mortara drama

04.18.2014

Steven Spielberg has a few different projects he would like to direct, and now you can add another to the list. Variety is reporting Spielberg will re-team with his LINCOLN and MUNICH screenwriter Tony Kushner for a religious drama called THE KIDNAPPING OF EDGARDO MORTARA.

The film will be based on David Kertzer's nonfiction novel, which is about an Italian Jew who was raised Catholic after being removed from his parents in 1858 at the age of seven by authorities of the Papal States. Edgardo Mortara later entered the Augustinian Order and became a priest.

Tony Kushner has just started working on the script for the adaptation, and THE KIDNAPPING OF EDGARDO MORTARA won't be Steven Spielberg's next directing gig. According to Variety, the filmmaker is trying to decide between ROBOPOCALYPSE and the historical drama MONTEZUMA. Sources say ROBOPOCALYPSE is the frontrunner, and one source believes Spielberg is close to finalizing a budget for the sci-fi flick. We also learned last month Steven Spielberg is also interested in directing a remake of WEST SIDE STORY.

Out of all Steven Spielberg's planned projects, the one I want to see the most is definitely ROBOPOCALYPSE. We've been hearing about the project for years now, and Spielberg hasn't directed something involving sci-fi since 2005's WAR OF THE WORLDS. And no, the aliens in INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL don't count. Which project would you like to see Steven Spielberg work on first?

If adventure has a name it must be....

...redeemed by Spielberg. I want his next film to be Indiana Jones whores Harrison Ford can still handle the rigors of the role. These other films listed above can be made at any time, but the clock is ticking on the Indy fans want to see.

Robopocalypse!

Definitely, and then Montezuma afterwards! This 'Kidnapping' movie doesn't sound very interesting

Montezuma sounds more interesting to me. His touch on this type of movie sounds epic.

While Robopocalypse sounds fun, I have to admit if he decided to make Montezuma I might even be more thrilled. I've wanted to see a movie of Hernán Cortez's encounter with Montezuma since high school. The idea of Steven Spielberg making it sounds too good to be true. So maybe he won't.

Please let it be Robopocalypse. The movie sounded great and under Spielberg I'm sure it could be a new classic for him and the genre. I just hope he can get Hemsworth and Hathaway to come back too.
