Steven Spielberg to Direct Film Adaptation of DC's 'Blackhawk'

Director Steven Spielberg More

Arguably, the great director of the world, Steven Spielberg has been wooing movie going audiences for decades. The film is also being developed for Spielberg to direct.

The project has always been rumored as one of Spielberg's unrealized ambitions, with DC writer Mark Evanier revealing in 2011 that Spielberg had even envisioned comedic actor Dan Aykroyd in the leading role as far back as the early 1980s.

"It was wonderful working with the team at Warner bring "Ready Player One" to the screen", Spielberg said. "I am excited to reunite with them on 'Blackhawk'".

Of the announcement, Warner Bros. Blackhawk told of an global squadron of heroic pilots led by a man named Blackhawk who fought the Nazis and their ilk in World War II.

Spielberg's total box office cume now stands at a staggering $10 billion, with that figure expected to grow with any new directorial effort the singular talent may have up his sleeves. While they aren't the most recognizable names standing next to other DC heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman, the group has made some appearances in the Justice League Unlimited animated series. Blackhawk will be added to a development slate for Spielberg that already includes a new adaptation of West Side Story and Indiana Jones 5.

Spielberg is developing the film with his Amblin Entertainment company.

Only two Steven Spielberg-directed movies have grossed under $100 million at the worldwide box office: Always, which is generally - and rightly - considered to be his worst film, and 1941, the profoundly unfunny comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. The film is due out in theaters in 2020.
