Steven Spielberg Wants to Hitch a Ride with the Joads for a 'Grapes of Wrath' Reboot

Grapes of Wrath Fox

Ah, the Joads. Those poor folks gave all-new meaning to the term down-trodden, did they not?

John Steinbeck's classic American novel "The Grapes of Wrath" — winner of the National Book Award, a Pulitzer Prize and permanent placement on pretty much any high school reading list in the country since its 1939 release — has already seen the cinematic light of day once before, but now it looks like this woeful tale might just be the next new project for Steven Spielberg.

Steven Spielberg Says Hollywood Is Headed For "A Meltdown" (It's Cool Though)

Well, this sounds great: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, speaking at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, said that, more or less, the Hollywood system as we know it is about to come crumbling down. Thankfully they gave us a heads-up so we have time to go buy hardhats and heavy duty tarps. (And those kids still have time to change majors, gulp.) Get More »

Steven Spielberg's Next Movie: 'American Sniper'

What happens when the sexiest man alive teams up with the world's great living director? Well, we're about to find out, because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Bradley Cooper and Steven Spielberg have signed on to lead and direct, respectively, the upcoming military biopic "American Sniper."

And it looks like the duo already has the Oscars planted dead-center in their crosshairs.

Based on the memoir "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History" by former U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, "American Sniper" tells the story of how Kyle earned the highest kill count in American military history (160 confirmed kills out of 255 reported kills, for those interested in the grisly statistics). After serving four tours of duty during the Iraq War, Kyle was dubbed the Devil of Ramadi by enemy insurgents, who placed an $80,000 bounty on his head. After returning home and retiring from the service, Kyle was murdered by a fellow veteran reportedly suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

It's a story filled with both heroics and tragedy, which is likely what drew Cooper to the film; besides starring in "American Sniper," Cooper is named as co-producer alongside Andrew Lazar and Peter Morgan.

Now they've been joined by Spielberg, who will not only direct but also co-produce the film, which basically ensures that it's going to get the fast track from production partners Warner Bros. and DreamWorks.

A legendary director, an Oscar nominated superstar, a New York Times number-one bestseller and a real American hero?

Bullseye.

Are You Ready For Steven Spielberg's 'Obama?'

After the overwhelming critical and box office success of "Lincoln" last year, fans around the world have been wondering just what director Steven Spielberg and star Daniel Day-Lewis could possibly do to top themselves. After all, Day-Lewis won the Best Actor oscar for his role as our 16th president. So where does he go from here?

Well, how about playing our current president, Barack Obama?

Yes, that's the brilliant idea behind this new viral clip, which comes not from the usual sources like Funny Or Die or "Saturday Night Live" but instead from an unexpected comedy machine: The White House.

Saying anything more would be too spoilery, so we'll just let this clip from last night's White House Correspondents' Dinner speak for itself. Because when you have a concept like Steven Spielberg's "Obama," well, what else do you need?

2013 Oscar Predictions: Now With Every Category (Even the Shorts!)

Argo Warner Bros.

Updated Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Okay folks, it's crunch time. Have you submitted your Oscar ballot yet? There's big money on the line (at least a hundy we hope, right?).

As we do every year on NextMovie, we're handicapping the Oscar races to give you a leg up on your friends, family and coworkers when entering your high-stakes pool, which as we all know is as much about the glory as the greenbacks (freaking Al from finance still hasn't gotten that smirk off of his face for calling Cotillard over Christie in 2008; get over yourself, Al).

Our usual disclaimers: We do not condone gambling, unless you're in Vegas or on a reservation. Good luck!

(And for  a trusty second opinion, check out Joe Reid's Oscar predictions on Film.com.)

Honest Trailers: 'Indiana Jones' and the Giant Steaming Dump

We've all had disappointments in life — missing that free throw in the state semis, getting stood up at the homecoming dance, that one time that puppy took a whiz in your purse — but for most of us, there's never been anything as disappointing as "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
