Steven Spielberg


Done with the filming of 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn', the two-time Academy Award-winning director will move on to do a contemporary adaptation of Mary Chase's play 'Harvey'.

"Harvey", a contemporary adaptation of Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, will be Steven Spielberg's next directing project. The 62-year-old filmmaker, who is busy with the post-production phase for "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn", eyes to start production in 2010.

Having worked with 20th Century Fox for 2002's "Minority Report", Spielberg uttered his excitement to team up once again through a press release. "I am very happy to be working again with my friend Tom Rothman who shepherded us through 'Minority Report,' " his statement read, "and with Elizabeth [Gabler] and Carla [Hacken], who I'm looking forward to collaborating with."

"Harvey" is a joint venture between DreamWorks and Fox. The movie about a man and his friendship with an invisible six-foot tall rabbit was first adapted into a film in 1950 with James Stewart in the starring role as Elwood P. Dowd. The script for the newer version has been written by novelist Jonathan Tropper. Spielberg will also serve as its producer along with Don Gregory, while Elizabeth Gabler and Carla Hacken are going to oversee the project for Fox 2000.

Two-time Academy Award-winning director for 1993's "Schindler's List" and 1998's "Saving Private Ryan", Steven Spielberg has produced and helmed a number of blockbuster movies. "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial", "Jurassic Park", "War of the Worlds", "Transformers" and "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" are only a few of them.
