Steven Spielberg's Lincoln Sounds Thrilling!

Spielberg_225.jpg"We start shooting in October. Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team Of Rivals is much too big a book to be a movie, so the Lincoln story only takes place in the last few months of his Presidency and life. I was interested in how he ended the war through all the efforts of his generals... but more importantly how he passed the 13th Amendment into constitutional law. The Emancipation Proclamation was a war powers act and could have been struck down by any court after the war ended... But what permanently ended slavery was the very close vote in the House of Representatives over the 13th Amendment -- that story I'm excited to tell." Fine, but who will pay for the 3-D glasses?
