Thank Jesus.

I was driving home tonight, heard the report, and shook my head.

I should have had more faith, knowing Spielberg's resistance to it over the last 20 years.

*I heard about this getting pushed back due to Liam Neeson signing on for Clash of the Titans, anyone else heard any news on this film? This could be an amazing movie!
This would make millions!! The story of Lincoln and what he did for the country would be a great honor for the president. It would be a tough project to be in Lincoln's shoes.

I do wonder what he'll do next (after his involvement in Tin Tin)

I always thought if they were to make a movie about Lincoln, Daniel Day Lewis could play this role to perfection. Just his height and facial structure not to mention he is one of the best actors of all time.

This movie has been stuck for years... I don't think it'll ever happen.

I wonder if they will discuss his racist viewpoints, because even though it is not publicized much, he was a racist. And please don't tell me that he freed the slaves with the Emancipation Proclamation and that how can he be a racist if he did that, because that piece of paper did nothing for the slaves. I don't want to get into an argument about it, just wanted to throw the idea of his societal views out there.

Not sure I can see her in that role. A good enough actress yes, but I don't know Dawg', she seems kind of "Pitchy". I'm just trying to keep it real...

I hope Lincoln gets made and that it gets Speilberg back on his directing track.

I don't know about Sally Field. She is a great actress, but she would look like a midget next to Liam Neeson. Well, even if Spielberg will direct this movie, I think she would be too old for the role when they'd start filming.
Blu-ray releases should be perfect representations of their cinema counterparts.

Can't wait to see this movie especially with John Williams scoring it.
