I'll start today's posts with news of a new Steven Speilberg movie that was originally set to go before "War of the Worlds", but underwent a rewrite first. From the Hollywood Reporter comes this news:

the Universal/DreamWorks project had been set to go before the cameras last year. Casting was under way when Spielberg decided to have Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner do a rewrite on the project, on which writers Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) and Charles Randolph (The Interpreter) also had worked.

With the project postponed, Spielberg moved quickly to begin filming his adaptation of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds, starring Tom Cruise.

The title? Vengeance. Currently starring Eric Bana and Daniel Craig, two fine actors.

This should be a great movie considering all the elements involved. There has been two older movies made on the subject around the time it happened. I'm sure Speilberg will give the subject the care it needs to be a great movie. This event represented one of the first acts of pure terrorism in modern times on such a large scale. I would go see this movie, I'm sure.
