For his part, Spielberg, 77, is also staying busy. He will likely make his next project a UFO film based on his own original idea. David Koepp is writing the screenplay, sources say.

I won't lie, I'm really happy that he's going back to something a bit more mainstream. But I say this as someone who grew up with 80s/90s Spielberg.

I'm curious if this'll be more family-friendly (E.T.) or horror (War of the Worlds).
 
Spielberg back to directing another alien movie? Hell f***ing yeah, I'm in!

I wonder if he'll take a similar approach to his unproduced Night Skies project.

That's what I'm thinking (hoping).
 
I remember seeing this fan trailer for Night Skies a few years back and it came to mind again when this news was announced:



If this movie ends up having a very similar tone that this fan trailer has, we could be in for something special.
 
Not only that but it's definitely going to be shot in IMAX, I just got a feeling.
 
You can even hear it in this where he's praising Denis and his filmmaking.

 
Spielberg doing sci-fi horror is always a treat, but keep him away from the third act. Stop making happy endings that make no sense! :argh:
 
It should be noted that Spielberg is a producer on the Netflix documentary Encounters. Given the rise in prominence of the UAP topic in the public discourse in the past several years, I think it's a great time for Spielberg to tackle the subject again. Really excited about this.
 
The more I think about it the more I hope it's a revamped version of Night Skies. He can even dust off the alien models!
 
I would love to see someone tackle the Phoenix Lights situation in the late 90s. There was a found footage movie based on it that I thought was pretty good but I would love to see Spielberg direct it.

 
Whatever it is, I can't wait for the part where the son rekindles a relationship with his estranged father

The son returns to help save the town from the UFOs where it's destroyed in a nuclear explosion... Then he's perfectly okay at the end of the movie at a relative's house that wasn't touched by the invasion.
 
War of the Worlds is a pretty darn good movie right up until the last 10-15 minutes.
 
For me it starts to go downhill after the ferry scene.
