Renowned filmmaker, Steven Spielberg, is all set to produce and direct his first ever superhero movie and it is going to be DC’s cinematic adaptation of the comic-book character Blackhawk.
Overwhelmed about being at the helm of affairs, Spielberg says that it’s going to be delightful to work with Warner Bros once again, as reported by Variety. “It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring Ready Player One to the screen. They bring a blend of passion and professionalism to everything they do and have a tremendous history in this genre. I am excited to reunite with them on Blackhawk.”
However, it’s important to mention here that the production of Blackhawk won’t commence until Spielberg finishes up his ongoing Indiana Jones film and gets done with his other directorial West Side Story.
Chairman of the Warner Bros Pictures Group, Toby Emmerich, is also very excited about collaborating with Spielberg and believes that the filmmaker will definitely break records this time around too. “We are so proud to be the studio behind Steven Spielberg’s latest hit and are thrilled to be working with him again on this new action adventure. We can’t wait to see what new ground he will break in introducing ‘Blackhawk’ to movie audiences worldwide.”
Spielberg’s version of Blackhawk will have a screenplay by David Koepp who has also worked with the filmmaker in other former superhits including Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Blackhawk has also seen another adaptation in 1952 movie serial which starred Kirk Alyn, who also happened to play the first screen Superman. The Blackhawk team also made a cameo in the animated film Justice League: The New Frontier. At the moment Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is doing great at the Hollywood box office.
