Daniel Day-Lewis to Play Abraham Lincoln in Steven Speilberg's Lincoln Film

Daniel Day-Lewis to Play Abraham Lincoln For Steven Spielberg

Daniel Day-Lewis is arguably one of the greatest actors of his time, and now he's going to take on one of the greatest American figures of all time. The Oscar-winning actor has signed on to play Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln, a biopic to be directed by Steven Spielberg.

Spielberg himself announced the news, praising Day-Lewis and saying that he is "grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln." The film is being adapted from the book Team of Rivals, about the 16th US president. Screenwriting duty is going to Tony Kushner, who was nominated for Munich. Is there any way this movie isn't going to sweep awards season when it comes out?
