Liam Neeson‘s much publicized reteaming with Hollywood great Steven Spielberg for the Abraham Lincoln biopic was something we all wanted to see.
However, Neeson dropped out of the film a little while back.
Spielberg than approached Daniel Day Lewis to fill the shoes to play the role of the legendary American President. Day Lewis accepted the role.
Here’s what Spielberg has to say on the matter: “Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema’s distant future. I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln,” said Steven Spielberg. “Throughout his career, he has been exceptionally selective in his choice of material,” added Stacey Snider, “which makes us feel even more fortunate that he has chosen to join with us for Lincoln.”
Based on the best-selling book, Team of Rivals, by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the screenplay has been written by the Pulitzer Prize winner, Tony Award winner, and Academy Award nominated writer Tony Kushner.’
This film has Oscars written all over it.

Miley Cyrus recently tweeted to the world from a Bahamas Beach, “don’t call me f*t.” At Cannes Film Festival, Penelope Cruz was saying exactly the same thing.
The Oscar winning star who was in France to promote the musical film NINE, was hit by a bout of severe food poisoning. Not being able to eat at all, Penelope had to be excused from her film promotional commitments with her Oscar winning costars.
Her talented co-star, Marion Cotillard of France, promoted the film with Harvey Weinstein of Miramax while Cruz recovered in her hotel room. Poor baby!
Nine looks amazing and also stars Cruz’s fellow oscar peers: Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Fergie, Daniel Day-Lewis, Sophia Loren and also Kate Hudson. Let’s hope Penelope Cruz is feeling better… but don’t call her f*t either. She’s trying to keep her food down today!
From the director of the musical film, Chicago comes, NINE. Wow… what can we say, but this film has Oscars written all over it.
It’s a mesh up of Moulin Rouge, it harks back to Italian cinema (in the mode of Antonioni), and it has some Britney Spears dance moves and hair action going on as well.
Most impressive, is the calibre of Oscar winning actors that have cast themselves in this film to give it a life. An incredible line up. All these actors have won Oscars: Sophia Loren, Daniel Day Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Dame Judi Dench and Moulin Rouge star, Nicole Kidman.
Let’s face it, NINE should just be renamed Oscar Wants To Sing & Dance in Italy! Sophia Loren provides the Italian stunningness to launch this film and Dame Judi is pretty fierce too. :)
