Steven Spielberg haven’t directed a live-action film for children in a long time. He hasn’t directed a kids film since, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” in 1997. Over the last decade or so, he mostly kept his focus on political/historic films and sci-fi films over the years. In the early 80’s/90’s, he was known for making films for kids and families such as “E.T.”, “Close Encounters”, the Indiana Jones movies, “Hook”, “Jurassic Park”, etc. Look like he’s finally going back to it.
Spielberg is planning to adapt Road Dahl’s “BFG” to the big screen.
