Funny how Hollywood always has two movies about similar topics in development simultaneously. The latest to get the double Hollywood rainbow is none other than Abraham Lincoln. Spielberg is still working on his with Daniel Day-Lewis, so first up is Robert Redford’s The Conspirator.
The picture, which stars Robin Wright, Kevin Kline, Tom Wilkinson, Danny Huston, Colm Meany, Evan Rachel Wood, Justin Long, Alexis Bledel, and James McAvoy, is more to do with the aftermath of Lincoln’s assassination and the prosecution of John Wilkes Booth’s co-conspirators.
Expect it to hit theaters in April. I generally loath the courtroom drama, especially the historical variety, but this looks interesting. [via AICN]
