Steven Spielberg has been plenty busy as a producer over the past couple of years, but as a director he hasn’t made any moves since 2012′s Lincoln. For a while it looked like Robopocalypse would be next, but then it was postponed indefinitely. Some months after that, he wound up dropping American Sniper as well. That left him with no directing projects in his immediate future.
But now, Spielberg may finally be ready to make a move. According to a new report, he’s eyeing Montezuma, the legendary 50-year-old script by Spartacus scribe Dalton Trumbo. And he’s not the only one interested. Javier Bardem and writer Steve Zaillian are apparently interested as well. More details after the jump.
