Spielberg's Next Two Movies Scheduled for 2015 & 2016 Openings
Briefly: It looks like we have official release dates for the next two Steven Spielberg-directed movies. In the last year, we've been covering news on Spielberg projects that have come about since Robopocalypse was delayed. A few months ago it was announced Spielberg was attached to an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG (seen above), a family friendly story about a little girl who leads a friendly giant and the Queen of England on a journey to stop man-eating giants from gobbling children. Thanks to @ERCboxoffice, that one has been scheduled for release July 1st, 2016 two years away. In addition, the Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks that Spielberg is also attached to has been given a release date - October 16th, 2015. Read on.
Up first, the currently untitled Cold War thriller tells the true story of James Donovan, an attorney who negotiated the release of downed U-2 spy plane pilot Gary Powers, who was held and interrogated by the KGB and imprisoned for espionage. Tom Hanks is attached already, with a script by Matt Charman, and it's currently scheduled to hit theaters in October 2015, a few months before his other movie comes out the next summer. His other one, the adaptation of the Roald Dahl book The BFG (or "Big, Friendly Giant"), was just announced but will be out in the summer of 2016. Perhaps an animated movie? It sounds like Spielberg has just scheduled his next two years of production, and Robopocalypse is still on hold. We'll keep you updated.
