Stephen Spielberg To Direct ‘Blackhawk’ Film

It’s surprising that legendary and prolific director Stephen Spielberg has never directed a superhero movie. After all he’s the man behind some of the biggest pop culture properties including Indiana Jones, E.T. and, most recently, Ready Player One. After the success of Ready Player One, Warner Bros. wants to keep the partnership going with Spielberg and the next project they want to work on is an adaption of DC’s Blackhawk. According to Variety:

The screenplay for Blackhawk is being written by David Koepp, who has collaborated with Spielberg as a screenwriter on the blockbusters “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “War of the Worlds,” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Spielberg will produce the film with Kristie Macosko Krieger under the Amblin Entertainment banner, while Sue Kroll will executive produce under her Kroll & Co. Entertainment shingle.

“It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring ‘Ready Player One’ to the screen,” Spielberg said. “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.’”

Hopefully this will lead to the Iconic filmmaker making more films for DC!
