Steven Spielberg News
Back in March, it was widely reported that 20th Century Fox was moving forward on a remake of the classic 1961 musical West Side Story, with Steven Spielberg interested in directing. It sounded like it might be the next project for the iconic filmmaker, but he instead decided on two other back-to-back projects that were gestating, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's novel The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant), and the very different Untitled Cold War Thriller starring Tom Hanks and Amy Ryan.
