I don't know if this has been mentioned already, but DDL's next movie is said to be "Silence" directed by Scorcese. The rumor is that Scorcese had to fight to make this film as studios plead with him to gangster movie after gangster movie.
It begins shooting next month.
No chance this is as good as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It's pretty great that this was essentially a side joke from Party Down.
sometime early next year....and the winner for Best Actor goes to...
Any Lincoln dorks read this?
Sounds really interesting
For some reason I always thought it was coming out in December. I don't know why.
i believe it was originally supposed to drop on xmas
Have they moved back the opening? I saw they moved back the Great Gatsby premiere too.
Go away, KA!
I was referring to hiim getting his Oscar. :)
Dixonownsyou and UMTerps90 boner alert
Is that an image of Daniel Day-Lewis or the guy on the $5 bill?

I'm guessing the November on that poster means limited release in November and the big release is still Christmas, correct?
The article states November
How much could they charge per ticket for a one-time, exclusive opening night showing at Ford's Theater?
I wrote it down somewhere, but it's limited release on the 9th I believe, and wide release the 16th (11/9, 11/16).
So you're telling me it'll be released in New York the same weekend as Maryland/Kentucky? Hmmmmm.
I got chills when I opened that link. Is there any chance this won't be the greatest performance of all time?
Yes. Mostly due to our expectation that this will be the greatest performance of all time.
Interestingly, Speilberg's first attempt at fucking this up was when he offered the role of Lincoln to Liam Neeson, who turned it down, per Neeson's wikipedia page. While I think Neeson may have looked the part and is certainly tall enough to play Lincoln, Lewis' voice and speech will be far better than Neeson's would have been.
I don't think he outright turned it down. If I remember right this had been in the works for a long time and schedule conflicts just caught up with it. Neeson had read something like 22 books on Lincoln in preparation.
Daniel-Day Lewis should be great though, and frankly, I like not having to think of him as Schindler the whole time I watch this.
I haven't read 22 books total in my life
FWIW, his wiki says he traveled to DC and Springfield, Ill to read Lincoln's personal letters and to otherwise prepare but ultimately felt too old for the part. Regardless, I think we will all be grateful for his demurrer.
That sounds right. I think original talk of a film w/ Spielberg happened right when Team of Rivals came out in 2005. I could be wrong but my original understanding was that as the project got pushed back further and further (I guess about 5 years in terms of what would appear on film) I think that age and other commitments prompted his withdrawal.
Honestly, didn't know much about DDL until looking him up after getting the part. I knew he major roles but he's apparently, very private and you don't hear a lot about him. But after rewatching some of his other stuff and seeing his range I'm pretty happy with this. Just hoping it can stand up to absurd expectations.
I get excited anytime I see either of the two DDL threads bumped. Just watched 'in the name of the father' again last Sunday. DDL is undoubtedly the best ever. If I found out he was cast as the lead in the "mike Tyson story" I'd be 100% confident he'd pull it off.
From the other thread sucking off DDL.
