Steven Spielberg, the filmmaker who brought some of the iconic characters on screen such as Indiana Jones, Tintin, has now teamed up with Warner Bros. Entertainment to make a movie on DC comics superhero, the Blackhawk.
Warner Bros. along with Spielberg’s own production company Amblin entertainment, together made Spielberg’s latest science-adventure film Ready Player One.
Set in the World War II era, Blackhawk chronicles the life of a mysterious man called Blackhawk and his team of fighter pilots called the “Blackhawks”. The screenplay is being written by Spielberg’s frequent collaborator David Koepp, who also wrote Jurassic Park, and War of the Worlds.
Spielberg had previously made the 3D animation feature film on Herge’s iconic character Tintin in the The Adventures of Tin Tin.
In a report by Los Angeles Times, Spielberg shared his experience of working with the Warner Bros. “It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring Ready Player One to the screen. They bring a blend of passion and professionalism to everything they do and have a tremendous history in this genre. I am excited to reunite with them on Blackhawk.”
It’s not clear when the production on Blackhawk will start. Spielberg’s next two projects include the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise and West Side Story.
