The world’s most celebrated director may tackle a DC movie if everything goes according to plan. It was recently revealed that Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros are collaborating on the adaptation of Blackhawk, which was a World War II-centric comic book.
Spielberg, via his production company Amblin Entertainment, will reportedly produce the movie for Warner Bros. There’s a good chance that the Academy Award director may direct this tale, which quite honestly is in his wheelhouse.
Blackhawk tells the story of a team of ace pilots who take to the skies in their marvellous flying machines to battle the bad guys (Nazis). For right now, Spielberg hasn’t committed to directing the tale but it may well happen especially with his experience with World War II dramas.
Still his schedule will be the biggest obstacle. Currently the director has a full plate with directorial duties for Indiana Jones 5 as well as a West Side Story remake on the cards. He also recently wrapped the political drama, The Post and the fantasy actioner, Ready Player One.
If he does decide to commit to Blackhawk, then expect production to begin in 2020, which is likely when his schedule is freed up.
