I keep hoping that Spielberg will push forward with biopic “Gershwin" with Zachary Quinto in the lead role. But Spielberg has chosen his post-"Lincoln" directing gig, and it's not the postponed "Robapocalypse." He's going to Warner Bros. to do “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper.

I keep hoping that Spielberg will push forward with biopic “Gershwin" with Zachary Quinto in the lead role. (Maybe he's waiting for the "Star Trek" star to get older.) But Spielberg has chosen his post-"Lincoln" directing gig, and it's not the postponed "Robapocalypse."  He's going to Warner Bros. to do “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper.

Jason Hall's script, adapted from the book “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History” by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice. follows a Navy Seal's career and 150 confirmed kills.

Spielberg, Cooper, Andrew Lazar, and Peter Morgan will produce with DreamWorks’ Kristie Macosko Krieger and Adam Somner overseeing at DreamWorks. Cooper’s production company, 22nd & Indiana Pictures, optioned the rights to the book a year ago.

“Sniper” is a Warner Bros. and DreamWorks Studios co-production. THR story here.
