I think most of us have known about this for a while now...but it's still cool nevertheless. I'm curious how they're gonna make Liam Neeson look like Abe...

...and I hope Neeson can pull the accent off.

All I know is that he'll probably go all the way and get both the look and accent down.

Liam Neeson's probably up there on the top-ten list of best actors today.

Spielberg's Lincoln Bio Pic Delayed Indefinitely
February 6th, 2006| Posted by Aaron

Hollywood Elsewhere spoke with Steven Spielberg's publicist, Marvin Levy who informed the site that apprently Spielberg's bio pic about the life of Abraham Lincoln (which was to star Liam Neeson as Honest Abe) has been delayed indefinitely:

I spoke to Liam Neeson twice last summer at a couple of post-movie-premiere parties, and he said that the plan was for Steven Spielberg's Abraham Lincoln movie, in which he'll play the title role, to start shooting sometime around March '06. Forget it -- Spielberg's spokesperson Marvin Levy told me yesterday the Lincoln project (which will be based in part upon Doris Kearns Goodwin's recently published book about Lincoln) won't roll anytime soon and is basically up in the air.

This could potentially be big news. This would definitely clear up Spielberg's Summer schedule and would give him ample time to make Indiana Jones 4. Of course, this could just be the result of Steven wanting to take a break from filmmaking for a while, something that he has mentioned recently, so don't get too excited. But you never know, this could possibly be a sign that the stars have finally begun to align. It looks as though Indy 4 is getting nearer and nearer, but to be on the safe side, don't run out and try to buy tickets just yet. As we have seen in the past, ANYTHING can happen. Stay tuned for the latest!

Big thanks to JimB for the news.

Indiana Jones 4 should get permanently shelved. I loved the first three movies, but making a forth this late in the game... it'd just stink.

I'm very excited about this Lincoln movie though. Hope it gets made soon! Liam Neeson is an inspired choice.

Yeah? Do you know what type of accent Abe would have had in the first place? Linguist, are you?

It's "F'n" Liam Neeson - "and I hope Neeson can pull the accent off" SILLY

I still don't know why they choose to leave these things untitled. I would think simply calling it "Lincoln" would be more than sufficient.

That is such an abstract and boring title.

^It shouldn't be long and pretentious either, like "The Adventures of the Great Emancipator". Nixon, JFK, etc....those all were simple titles that got your attention because you know who these dudes are. Same with Lincoln, and I hope soon, George Washington.

Who would you like to see play him if the idea of a movie ever came up?

Maybe Thomas Kretschmann.

I don't know why, but in this picture he reminds me of Washington.

Of course, but "Lincoln" is lame. Sorry, I expect a little more creativity from Spielberg. I was not too happy when he titled Munich. I thought it was uninspired.

Liam Neeson Talks Lincoln
Source: Max Evry
January 24, 2007


ComingSoon.net sat down in New York on Tuesday with Liam Neeson to talk about his role in the new western Seraphim Falls. During the discussion he let spill some details of his preparation for Steven Spielberg's planned biopic Lincoln, in which Neeson will play the famously tall and doomed 16th President.

ComingSoon.net: Did what you learned about the Civil War era for "Seraphim Falls" inform your preparation for "Lincoln"?
Neeson: Oh absolutely, yeah because when they asked me to do "Seraphim Falls" I was already a year into research for "Lincoln." Very very heavily into the Civil War and that whole period. That's still an ongoing process.

CS: What sort of things are you doing to portray this person who was certainly never captured on film and whose physical mannerisms and voice are basically hearsay?
Neeson: We know a lot about him, it's not hearsay. There's over two-thousand books written on this man. Two-thousand. Some of them are great books, I've read about twenty-two maybe.

CS: Have you visited his home?
Neeson: I've been there. I've been to Washington, I've held his wallet, I've said a prayer on the Bible he was inaugurated on. Still ongoing… there's an extraordinary Lincoln bicentennial committee, a place I go to in Washington. I got to know this guy Michael Bishop who's the co-chair. He gave me access to all this Lincoln stuff. I read his personal letters and stood on the stage at Ford's Theater.

CS: Did they let you into the balcony?
Neeson: You can't go in there, no. It's sealed off. But I love the fact that he loved the theater. There's not too many presidents you see going to see plays every so often. Lincoln did, all the time! He supported live theater, which is terrific.

CS: He should have stayed away from "Our American Cousin."
Neeson: I know. (laughs)

Spielberg will first direct Indiana Jones 4 before turning his attention to this project.

With Neeson starring and Spielberg directing, it basically can't be bad.
