Steven Spielberg Drafts 'War Horse' As His Next Project
On-set romances always end badly.
James Van Der Beek will soon have another poster to add to his fictitous wall. For his next project, Steven Spielberg will send a horse to war. The Saving Private Ryan director optioned Michael Morpurgo's novel War Horse, a story about a horse on the front lines of World War I as he inspires his platoon and longs to return to the farm on which he was raised.
I'm really looking forward to the inevitable scene where the horse shows the other soldiers a photograph of the philly he's gonna marry back home. Movies like this always have those. (Variety)
