SPIELBERG SET TO PRODUCE MLK BIOPIC
Tuesday, May 19 by

Variety reports that Steven Spielberg is set to produce a biopic about the life of inspiring civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.. The King Estate has granted Dreamworks unprecedented access to the intellectual property of Dr. King including his famous, "I Have A Dream" speech. It goes without saying that this is an important film and I sincerely hope that it is done intelligently and respectfully. In other words, don't let George Lucas near it.Check out more morning headlines. Michael Mann talks up his new talkie, Public Enemies. (The Playlist) Thor casts relative unknowns.
