Another Project for Spielberg

via Empireonline.com’s Glen Ferris
Imagine a cross between ET: The Extra Terrestrial and Robert De Niro’s Hide And Seek and you’ve pretty much got a grasp on the latest project to grab Steven Spielberg’s attention.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Beard is planning to adapt Chocky, based on the novel by Brit writer John Wyndham and the beloved 80’s TV show, through the newly independent Dreamworks.
The tale of a father who becomes concerned that his son’s imaginary friend is becoming something of a problem and his subsequent discovery that said invisible buddy is actually a benign visitor from another world sounds like prime material for Spielberg.

The word is that Spielberg is keen to direct the kiddies’ novel but first he has to get Tintin and his Liam Neeson-starring Lincoln biopic in the bag. We will, of course, bring you all the latest developments as they unfold.

Jaws, Raiders Among Empire’s Top 500

Several Spielberg films made Empire Magazine’s Top 500 films of all time.  The list was compiled from numerous film critics, film makers, and film fans from across the country sending in there top 10 favorite film titles.  Though some were questionable, such as how The Thin Red Line could be so far up ahead of Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, others were dead on.  Two of Spielberg’s films made the top 5, with Jaws placing fifth and Raiders of the Lost Ark placing 2nd, beaten only by his friend Francis Ford Copolla’s The Godfather, which was a no-brainer.

Other Spielberg films to make the list included all three Indiana Jones sequels, Close Encounters, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, and ET.  Other Spielberg-produced films made the list, including the first two Back to the Future films, Men in Black, and Gremlins.

Spielberg released from Dreamworks

Paramount officially released Steven Spielberg and other DreamWorks executives from their contracts on Friday even as reports circulated that the studio had offered to finance Spielberg’s Tintin, a movie that Universal had deemed too costly to produce and distribute. Commented Daily Variety: “The move served as a reminder to the departing Spielberg that the new DreamWorks will still be dependent on studio largesse when it comes to financing big-budget tentpoles.” On Friday DreamWorks also announced that it had finalized a deal reportedly worth $500 million with India’s Reliance in order to restart as an independent studio again. (According to reports, it will continue to be called DreamWorks.) It reportedly plans to borrow an additional $700 million.
