Spielberg Planning Harvey Adaptation


For his next project, Steven Spielberg is reportedly looking back a few decades to a Pulitzer Prize-winning play featuring an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit: Harvey. The play was turned into a 1950 movie starring Jimmy Stewart as the "amiable eccentric" at the heart of the story, Elwood P. Dowd, who has a friendship with a tall, invisible bunny (Harvey). The movie explores how this friendship affects Elwood's family and friends.

Though Spielberg has been attached to several projects (like the Abraham Lincoln biopic, which has been whispered about for nearly two years), movement on Harvey is actually happening now: casting and pre-production are set to begin immediately and production is scheduled to begin in early 2010.

Producer Tom Rothman called Spielberg "a filmmaker who combines the mastery of craft, tone, wit and insight that Harvey embodies. Steven Spielberg is film's greatest humanist. And we feel blessed as Elwood himself to be collaborating with him, Stacey [Snider], and everyone at DreamWorks." Snider added, "This is a story relevant for all times, perhaps more so than ever before."

Do you agree that Harvey is a tale that's more relevant now than ever before? And who could you envision in the role of a modern-day Elwood?
