Spielberg's Lincoln. FINALLY a go!

Spielberg has recently leaked some info about his Lincoln film while doing press for Indiana Jones. He recently told German magazine FOCUS that he intends to return his focus to his long delayed biopic of Abraham Lincoln.

According to Cinematical, It has been kicked around so long that Spielberg's decision is almost a nonevent, but it is still all kinds of exciting because it could begin shooting early next year. Liam Neeson is still attached and has been for the past three years, reportedly amassing research all this time. It will still have that Tony Kushner script, and it is still based on The Uniter: The Genius of Abraham Lincoln, the brilliant biography by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

As a resident of the totally RAD state of Illinois and home to Mr. Lincoln himself, I am beyond excited to get a Spielberg level production of of Lincoln. This won't be any PBS documentary, this will be a Lincoln film of E.T./Jurassic Park proportions (probably closer to Amistad or Schindler's List, but I'm hopeful). This movie will ROCK. GUARANTEED.
