'Lincoln' Scribe Tony Kushner Writing Something New For Steven Spielberg
fb.indiewire.com With “Lincoln” finally hitting theaters today in select theaters -- it opens wide next week -- and pundits predicting multiple nominations for the long-delayed project, Steven Spielberg has decided he wants to stay in the Tony Kushner business and is already working with the “Lincoln” writer again. In an interview with EW (via Broadway World) the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright let slip that he’s currently “working on a new script for [Spielberg].” Kushner doesn’t elaborate any further on what the project is, only that he’s been working on it for “a couple of weeks.” Spielberg’s next film is “Robopocalypse” (penned by Drew Goddard) and, like so many A-list directors these days, he’s a full slate of possible options after that.
