Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg team up again for Obama biopic

— Posted by Ryan


After the success of Lincoln, Steven Spielberg decided to move to another biopic about a President. With President Barack Obama being in the media spotlight so often, Spielberg decided that his next film should surround his presidency. With Daniel Day-Lewis being such a versatile actor, Spielberg saw no reason to cast anyone else as the lead role. Watch the video below to hear Spielberg’s thoughts on the upcoming film and see Daniel Day-Lewis’ prepare for the role.



Well Spielberg won’t actually be making the film but it was pretty funny to see President Obama going along with the joke. I just thought this was too funny not to post. Regardless of your political stance, you have to admit this guy does have a pretty good sense of humor.

When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.

"History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quite deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood. However, history remembers me before I was a President. It shall only remember a fraction of the truth."
