After the emphatic and cultural success of READY PLPAYER ONE, Steven Spielberg is set to produce and possibly direct a DC comic’s superhero film titled, BLACKHAWK.
The story follows a squadron of pilots who fight against the Nazi’s and other foes. Comic book icon Will Eisner is credited as one of the co-creator of the series.
Spielberg and his Amblin Entertainment are reteaming with Warner Bros. Pictures to produce the adaptation of DC’s “Blackhawk,” the studio announced on Tuesday.
Warner Bros. Pictures Group Chairman Toby Emmerich said, “We are so proud to be the studio behind Steven Spielberg’s latest hit, and are thrilled to be working with him again on this new action adventure, we can’t wait to see what new ground he will break in introducing ‘Blackhawk’ to movie audiences worldwide.”
Spielberg said, “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”.
Further details about the film aren’t yet known but after the recent disappointment with BATMAN V/S SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE, this story should make fans hope for a breathtaking film.
