Steven Spielberg makes plans for "Lincoln"

Cinema Confidential caught up with Director Steven Spielberg who mentioned his next project may be the Abraham Lincoln project. "I think history is important," he said. "I know that I want to make a movie about Abraham Lincoln and I have a script in development right now about the relationship between Abe Lincoln and Frederick Douglas, and John Logan’s writing it, and that’s a movie I’m probably going to make in the next 18 months or 2 years." Spielberg says he’ll most likely do the film before starting work on "Indiana Jones 4" in 2004.
