Steven Spielberg will tackle his long-gestating religious period drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara after he wraps Ready Player One, setting his Bridge of Spies co-star Mark Rylance to star in the Amblin Entertainment project. Tony Kushner, who worked on Spielberg’s Lincoln and Munich, wrote the script adapting the David Kertzer novel, which has been in development with the filmmaker since 2008. The true story centers on a 6-year-old Jewish boy who, in 1858, was seized by the police and removed from his parents’ home. He was raised as a Catholic and became a priest in the Augustinian order.
The second trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG, the big-screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s tale about the relationship between a benevolent giant and an orphan girl, has arrived, complete with our first full view of the film’s giant.
