An editor at Variety had a back and forth private e-mail chat with Steven Spielberg himself, discussing the Dreamworks/Disney deal. Look like Spielberg plans to release “Tin Tin” with it first, he’ll be directing that movie very soon. “Tin Tin” is adapted from the comic hero, “The Adventures of Tin Tin”.
According to an earlier news report at MTV News…Jamie Bell is set to star as Tin Tin, and Daniel Craig is also set star in the film as well.
I’m sure Spielberg will make a great “Tin Tin” movie, as I was a fan of the character when I was a kid.
Spielberg also has his movie about, President Abraham Lincoln planned and of course, the movie with Will Smith, “Old Boy”. I wonder if he’ll release those two films through Disney as well. Spielberg plans to do live action films only. He doesn’t say anything about animated films in the article.
I think Spielberg has finally grown tired of making films for adults that he wants to get back to making movies for kids again like he did in the 80’s and early 90’s.
My top ten favorite Spielberg films are here:
- Schindler’s List
- Raiders of the Lost Ark
- War of the Worlds
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind
- The Terminal
- The Color Purple
- Minority Report
I don’t really care for “Saving Private Ryan”, it’s a bit overrated and there are better war films than that, in my opinion.
