Steven Spielberg Eyes Liam Neeson for Lincoln Biopic

Steven Spielberg is in talks with Liam Neeson to play the 16th president of the United States with plans to start production next January, Variety reports. The movie will be based Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Dearns Goodwin's bio that will come out next fall titled "The Uniter: The Genius of Abraham Lincoln." However, the report also says that if this biopic is indeed shooting for a January start date, it will pushed back an already delayed project Speilberg was planning to make on the 1972 Munich Olympics, where members of the Israeli team were taken hostage and slain by Palestinian terrorists. Spielberg is currently filming "The War of the Worlds," starring Tom Cruise.
