Steven Spielberg seemingly might be following in the steps of his old guard peers -- James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott – veteran filmmakers jumping headfirst into 3D and new technologies. After all, his upcoming adventure film "Tintin" is his first digitally shot motion-capture film in 3D, and it’s employing state of the art technology all around.

The career boost an Oscar gives you is known to anyone whose had the fortune of standing on stage at the Kodak Theater, but for copy-writer-turned-stripper-turned-author-turned-screenwriter Diablo Cody, little did she know that one of the most famous directors in Hollywood would be an early supporter. Even before she was nominated and eventually won her Oscar for "Juno," Spielberg hired her to write the pilot episode of "The United States Of Tara," a show he executive produced. A little while later he hired her to write an adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Taming Of The Shrew," another project he was going to executive produce. And that support from Spielberg isn't lost on Cody, and when The Playlist correspondent Drew Taylor caught up with her during press rounds for "Young Adult" she was effusive in what his early support meant to her.

While he may have dabbled in a number of genres, told a variety of stories, and balanced big blockbusters with thoughtful dramas, the one constant in the career of Steven Spielberg (Daddy-issue themes aside) has been John Williams. The composer has worked on 25 of the director's films (that includes the upcoming "War Horse" and "The Adventures Of Tintin"), only missing out on "Duel" and "The Color Purple" over their decades-long collaboration. So no shocker here, but Variety confirms that Williams will once again pair up with Spielberg to tackle the score for his dream project "Lincoln."

Steven Spielberg has pretty much done it all. You name a genre and he's tackled it in some fashion or another, either as a director a producer, however, one arena he hasn't played in at all is the bible movie, though that may be about to change.
