Steven Spielberg’s long hoped for, much discussed, and anxiously awaited Lincoln biopic just added a ton of cast members. An entire union’s worth, really.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, along with Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes (!), Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill and Joseph Cross are all in negotiations to join the film.

David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong and David Warshofsky are also in talks, apparently “lesser” talks than the group listed above.

Of that breathless group, we only know who Jones and Gordon-Levitt are playing. Jones will be Thaddeus Stevens, one of the prime Radical Republicans to lead the Senate during the Civil War. He supported the first law attacking slavery, and became one of the most determined vicious opponents of slavery. He’s a controversial figure for the measures he took against the South, but he had a very kind and compassionate view towards the minorities of the day. He’s a perfect fit for Jones, who bears a startling resemblance to him.

Gordon Levitt will be playing Robert Todd Lincoln, Lincoln’s eldest son, and the only one to survive into adulthood. He served during the war, had a distant relationship with his father, but continued a pretty public role after his father’s death.

Sadly, we don’t know who John Hawkes will be playing at this point, but since he looks like he walked out of the 19th century, let’s hope it’s something substantial. Perhaps some of you who know the Civil War and Lincoln presidency inside and out can start to figure out who some of these people may be playing.

Any doubts you had that this film would be massive in scope ought to be gone by now. Just based on the cast, Lincoln looks like it will have been worth the wait.

incoln is the story of… Abraham Lincoln!! The long in development film by Steven Spielberg is based on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.

The book, and presumably the film, deal with Lincoln toward the end of the Civil War and the struggles he was having with his cabinet. Which illustrates both how Lincoln and I are similar and different. We both struggle with cabinets. His consisted of men who were trying to help him end the bloodiest war in American history, mine consists of a handleless mirror containing prophylactics when I’m on a tight schedule. He was all, “Four score and seven years ago…” and I’m all, “No score and seven inches ago.”

Who’s It For?

I think it may go R and really portray Lincoln as he was. When Spielberg makes a drama, he’s doesn’t pull any punches, and I think a realistic approach would be great. That said, the film is about one of America’s most popular presidents. Parents are going to want to bring their kids. It may go PG-13.

Movie Release Date

The film was delayed so Spielberg could make Tintin. Maybe late 2011 or 2012.

Who’s In It?

Liam Neeson… Abraham Lincoln
Sally Field… Mary Todd Lincoln (still only a rumor)

Related Movies

Munich, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List, John Adams HBO miniseries

What’s Good About It?

It’s Steven Spielberg making an Abraham Lincoln movie! Even at his least inspired, Spielberg makes Oscar nominees. And he’s shown a passion for this film for the last few years. And what was that other movie that Neeson and Spielberg worked together on? Schindler’s List? Oh yeah.

What’s Bad About It?

Tintin pushes everything back. Lincoln was originally set to come out in 2009, coinciding with Lincoln’s 200th birthday. And the first black president would have been that year, which Lincoln paved the way for. Stupid Tintin, little French kid ruined everything!

Our Clever Prediction

Spielberg’s first purchase for the film will be award polish. After the film sweeps the Oscars, the award will be remade into the shape of Steven Spielberg’s body, but with wings. This movie will be amazing. No, this film will be rad. (I guarantee I’m the first person to call a Lincoln film rad)
And I just thought, in a few years, won’t Cillian Murphy look just like Lincoln? I’m just saying, if there are scenes of a young Lincoln, he’d be perfect.

Hollywood has a long history of movies being beaten into cinemas by rival projects on a similar subject, but that doesn't appear to bother Steven Spielberg. The Oscar-winning film-maker yesterday insisted he was moving forward with his long-planned biopic of Abraham Lincoln despite news of a rival project from another film-making colossus, Robert Redford.

Spielberg told Variety he had no intention of putting the kibosh on his film, set to star Liam Neeson as the US president who won the civil war and abolished slavery, even though Redford's tale is likely to arrive on the scene first. "We are very happy that Redford will be doing this Lincoln movie," he said. "It is completely different from what our DreamWorks Lincoln movie will be, and we believe that it will add to the commercial potential of our film. Lincoln as a subject is inexhaustible."

Redford announced yesterday that his independently-financed film, The Conspirator, would start shooting next month, with a cast headed by James McAvoy and Robin Wright Penn. Rather than a biopic, it is the tale of the assassination of the president by actor and Confederacy sympathiser John Wilkes Booth. The plot will focus on the story of Mary Surratt (Wright Penn), who was allegedly one of Booth's aides. McAvoy will play Frederick Aiken, an idealistic young war hero who reluctantly defends Surratt and in the process comes to believe she is innocent.

Spielberg's film, the screenplay for which is currently being revised by the Pulitzer prize-winning writer Tony Kushner, looks likely to centre on Lincoln's anguish over the length and fallout of the civil war. The film-maker is planning to bring his remake of Henry Koster's Oscar-winning 1950 comedy Harvey, the original of which starred James Stewart as a man whose best friend is an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit, to cinemas next. Robert Downey Jr has been tapped for the title role.
