Steven Spielberg’s long-awaited Lincoln movie finally has a release date. It will open in select theaters on November 9th and in theaters everywhere one week later.
Spielberg isn’t the only filmmaker who’s working on a Lincoln project. Acclaimed director Terrence Malick is producing a film about Lincoln’s early years. Diane Kruger broke the news when she told an interviewer that she’ll be playing Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln.
Finally, a television film based on the book Killing Lincoln by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard is in the works. Produced by the same filmmakers who made last year’s Emmy-winning documentary Gettysburg, it will star Billy Campbell as Lincoln and will air on the National Geographic Channel in 2013.
