Steven Spielberg May Go Into the "Trial"


Steven Spielberg


Famed director Steven Spielberg is eyeing chance to helm Aaron Sorkin-scripted "The Trial of the Chicago 7."

Prominent filmmaker Steven Spielberg may really get busier for the couple of years from now. Already has "Lincoln" and "Interstellar" in his future helming credits, the celebrated director reportedly is hoping to go behind the camera again for "The Trial of the Chicago 7."

Project turns out to be the first of the three-films deals screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has struck with DreamWorks Pictures, which is currently enjoying the massive success of "Transformers" that Spielberg executive produced. Story will center on the trials of protestors at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, where clashes between demonstrators and police made it one of the defining events of the 60s.

While names to star have not yet been revealed, husband-and-wife team Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are learned to both serve as the producers for the drama. It is said that the two, fresh from producing "The Lookout", have been developing the picture alongside Spielberg and Sorkin for some time.
