    What the hell man? War Horse doesn't sound that great, although it could be very good, it doesn't sound that interesting. Neeson was effing perfect for this.

    i think War Horse is a fantastic movie for the Beard. but lets face it . the Lincoln movie with Neeson would be perfection and a masterpiece. two humans who were born to create this movie.

    ****ing Spielberg. I dunno what's been up with him. He had Lincoln, a masterpiece in the making, but couldn't get it made. Then he had Interstellar, another potential masterpiece, but said **** it. Now he wants to make a movie about a kid and a horse with no well-known actors. uggghhh

    This is ridiculous. Neeson worked his ass off researching that part, this was probably going to be his magnum opus as an actor. Not to mention the movie was likely to be awesome in it's own right. I remember in early 2006 two of my most anticipated movies were this and the Manhunt movie starring Harrison Ford. Now they're both gone. :csad:

    If Lewis gets this consider me in again. But I can't thin of anyone else who can play the man.

    So what exactly was the problem? Did the studio not put up enough funding or what...?

    I guess all the dozens of projects Spielberg has. Maybe not everything has come together correctly. I doubt funding has anything to do with it. It's Spielberg, they'd do anything he asks for. So I guess maybe it was just Spielberg's choices on what he does with each project. Maybe War Horse just seemed more possible to do.

    I'd rather see this than Water horse. That doesn't sound terribly intersting.

    I'm just guessing. War Horse just might have seem more possible and fit in with him so he did that.

    Neeson seemed perfect , this blows.

    I think Spielberg heard about the project that would have Lincoln as a vampire slayer and thought he wouldn't be able to top it.

    LOL! Would be funny if Neeson signed on for that instead.

    Wow. I know old Danny picks his roles like a serial killer picks his victims..methodically. So he must really see something in being able to take on Abe. Plus, Spielbergo helming didn't hurt.

    Good that Spielberg is doing this instead of Robopocalypse, and Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham?
    He's a great replacement for Neeson and will do a wonderful performance, that's for sure. :up:

    Looks-wise, I would've preferred Liam, but Daniel's a great actor, so I'm not too broken up about it. :up:

    Maybe Neeson can play the vampire-hunting Abe!

    Abe- There's something you should know. I have very special skills....

    I honestly think, in terms of appearance, DDL is closer to Lincoln than Neeson.

    Just my opinion, though.

    how tall are the two actors respectively? You as awesome as DDL is something in me still wishes this part was going to an American actor. Lincoln played by a Brit/Irishmen is almost like if they had and Aussie play William Wallace. Oh wait...

    I'd say it's fairly likely.
