Steven Spielberg Developing DC Comics Movie BLACKHAWK As A Potential Directing Vehicle

Breaking news from the Warner Bros. lot as it's being reported that the legendary Steven Spielberg is currently developing a DC Comics movie based on Blackhawk and in addition to producing, he may direct!

Well, here's something you didn't expect to hear today: Steven Spielberg is developing a DC Comics movie.

Multiple sources are reporting that the 3x Academy Award-winning director/producer is currently in the early stages of developing a movie based on the DC Comics character Blackhawk and if all goes according to plan, he intends on directing as well. “It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring ‘Ready Player One’ to the screen. They bring a blend of passion and professionalism to everything they do and have a tremendous history in this genre. I am excited to reunite with them on ‘Blackhawk.',” said Spielberg in a statement.

Frequent collaborator David Koepp has been tapped to pen the screenplay. His past works include Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Spielberg will produce alongside Kristie Macosko Krieger and Sue Kroll.

Hot on the heels of Ready Player One, which should top $500 million worldwide by the end of this coming weekend, Spielberg is already at work prepping for the untitled fifth chapter in his Indiana Jones series and will then tackle the West Side Story remake before shifting his attention to Blackhawk, so this comic book movie is still more than a few years away. However, unlike some of the other rumored DC movies in some stage of development, this one is increasingly likely to actually get made with someone of Spielberg's caliber attached.

Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich also expressed his excitement at reuniting with Spielberg so quickly after the blockbuster success of Ready Player One, “We are so proud to be the studio behind Steven Spielberg’s latest hit, and are thrilled to be working with him again on this new action adventure. We can’t wait to see what new ground he will break in introducing ‘Blackhawk’ to movie audiences worldwide.”
