I just read today that Steven Spielberg is filming a movie based on the life of Abraham Lincoln. The movie is set to be released after the 2012 presidential election, so there’s plenty of time for you to read the 944 pages of the book that it is based on—Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.
Daniel Day Lewis has been selected to play the part of Lincoln, and Sally Field will play Mary Todd. The mash-up to the right shows the uncanny resemblance of Daniel Day Lewis to President Lincoln. Spielberg has the Midas touch when it comes to movies, and I can’t wait to see this one.
Speaking of Spielberg, he has another movie coming out this December that is set during World War I. It’s called “War Horse,” and the trailer is really well done. Watch it below.
