Rising Stars Jack O'Connell, George MacKay & Alexandra Roach Lead Cast, Mark Knopfler To Write ScoreIt's not out until Christmas, but already "War Horse" is widely seen as an awards front-runner: it is, after all, directed by Steven Spielberg, based on a beloved novel, follows hot on the heels of a much-praised stage version that's been a smash hit both in London and on Broadway, and combines both a gruelling war tale and a touching journey to track down an animal, so it will have to be a real disaster to not leave audiences teary-eyed at the end. And it looks like people are banking on its success, as another novel with a World War One setting by Michael Morpurgo, writer of the original book, is heading to the big screen.
