Following the news that Sacha Baron Cohen is cast in Steven Spielberg's "The Trial of the Chicago 7" a few days back, more Hollywood names who might be up for roles in the drama film has been leaked. According to reports, the Vanity Vair's article about "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" has given out hints that Will Smith, Taye Diggs, Adam Arkin, Kevin Spacey and Philip Seymour Hoffman could be attached to the new project.
In the article posted on VanityFair.com, Jim Windolf, the writer, wrote down, "My glance strays to a side table, where headshots of actors under consideration for his likely next directing project, Chicago 7 - about the conspiracy trial that grew out of protests at the 1968 Democratic convention - lie on the surface. Among them I spy Will Smith, Taye Diggs, Adam Arkin, and Kevin Spacey; Sacha Baron Cohen (as Abbie Hoffman) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (as William Kunstler) are also linked to the project, which has a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin."
Though having to wait for the confirmation about the joining of those Hollywood stars, some things are for certain. This Dream Work's project will be directed by Spielberg who will also be the producer alongside Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. Additionally, the motion picture that is written by Aaron Sorkin chronicles the story of Vietnam war protestors who interrupted the 1968 Democratic party convention in a violent confrontation. Further, it is planned to be released in 2010.
