Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln does not hunt vampires, but he will be married to Sally Field. Me? Nothing against two time Oscar winner Field, but I’d take the vampire hunting. I just really hate vampires.

Field will star opposite Daniel Day-Lewis as The Great Emancipator, and I just realized that particular nickname for President Abraham Lincoln sounds dirty. *Chuckles Heartily* As Mary Todd Lincoln, Field is expected to have a major role. Spielberg praised Field for being able to portray the “fragility and complexity that was Mary Todd Lincoln.” (Read: Craziness.) However, her age is a little awkward: Field is 67, older than Mary Todd was when she finally kicked the bucket. Eh, she still looks good. She’ll pull it off – worst case scenario, Spielberg calls someone at Industrial Light and Magic. Badda bing, badda boom.

Screenwriter Tony Kushner adapted the book Team of Rivals by Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, which chronicles the president’s later, Civil War-ier years. Lincoln is pushing to emancipate theaters in late 2012. (LA Times)

The Oscar-winner is in talks to join the Spider-Man reboot that is ramping up for a December start.

Sony and Marc Webb have just reminded Sally Field that she’s not a spring chicken anymore in the nicest way possible. The Oscar-winner is in talks to join the Spider-Man reboot that is ramping up for a December start. It’s reported that she will play Martin Sheen wifey and Peter Parker mother-figure Aunt May. But what if this is a big misdirect?

Could it be that Spidey is teaming up with the Flying Nun this time around to take down the threat of the Lizard? Or perhaps, she’ll be the baddie. Look at the way she flies around with that glider wimple. That’s Oscorp tech if I’ve ever seen it. (THR)
