Needs a new Lincoln, more like it needs to be filmed.

Why is this project taking so long to get made?And Neeson is going to play LBJ? Weird.

Weird. Liam Neeson is 2 years older than Lincoln was when he died. I don't know what portion of his life the film covers, but that seems strange... especially because Lincoln looked so much older than he actually was.

This movie's been in development longer than Lincoln was in office.

I get the feeling something else is going on. The explanation doesn't make much sense...

Could be an attempt to get more money or see how badly Spielberg wants him in the title role. This would be an epic historical film. I share others' dismay that it's caught in development limbo.

Despite being Irish, Liam would be an awesome Lincoln.

Who the heck is going to want to see an Abraham Lincoln Bio-Pic?okay . . . maybe some middle-school teachers would take their students out to see it.The name Lincoln associated with "A Steven Spielberg Movie" seems BORING just thinking about it. bbbbboooooorrrrrriiiinnnggg . . . totally.---So I guess the question is: HOW to make an exciting Lincoln bio-pic that wouldn't bore people out of the theaters?

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? :PPersonally, I wouldn't mind seeing Spielburg's Lincoln. There should be quite a bit of good stuff to cover there.

I suppose you'd be more interested in a biopic about Taft?Allow your brain to be stimulated for once. Lincoln is probably our most fascinating president.

The Best Republican President the U.S. ever had.

I think it sounds boring too. Hard to tell at this stage, but there is nothing about this project that screams EX.CITE.MENT.

If it was based on the assassination and following manhunt it could be a heck of a movie, the whole story is incredible, just need to find the right Booth.

I recall a Lincoln project being discussed at one point that concerned the assassination and the manhunt. Harrison Ford was to play the Army Captain charged with finding Booth. I can't remember if it's the same project or not.

Of course the casting is going to be a problem. Have you seen pictures of Lincoln? The man was weird looking.

I wonder when Spielberg is going to make a great movie again; I was really hoping this could be it.
Aug 2 - 04:16 PM
C'mon Spielberg! Get Neeson back and get this thing going! This movie could be incredible and Neeson is the only person who I can think of who seems right to play Honest Abe. Screw any of this other crap in the pipeline, finish Tintin and jump on this!
