Steven Spielberg is jumping into the world of DC Comics.
The iconic filmmaker is tackling his first DC Comics property, the World War II action-adventure hero Blackhawk.
Spielberg, along with his Amblin Entertainment, will produce Blackhawk for Warner Bros., and is developing it as a directing vehicle, the studio announced Tuesday. The move reteams him with the studio behind his latest tentpole, Ready Player One.
David Koepp, who has worked with Spielberg writing the blockbusters Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is penning the script.
Another HUGE get for Warner Bros. Wonder what Disney’s thinking.
Also, I do like the idea of DC focusing on some of the more obscure corners of their universe. Just avoids the baggage of what has come along so far.
