Spielberg to Head into Space (after "Indiana Jones 4" & Abe Lincoln!)

by | June 15, 2006 | Comments

The always-busy Steven Spielberg seems to have settled on his next directorial project. It’ll be an outer-space adventure that deals with wormholes, black holes, and space travel … based on actual science!

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Paramount Pictures and Steven Spielberg will develop a space travel story about a group of explorers who travel through a worm hole and into another dimension. Spielberg hopes to direct the film, which Lynda Obst will produce.

Project, in a nascent stage, is anchored in real science. It was derived from a treatment by Kip S. Thorne, a Caltech physicist who’s an expert on relativity. Thorne is most famous for his controversial theory that wormholes not only exist but can be accessed and used as portals for time travel."

Either way, this project will not be Mr. Spielnerg’s next flick. He’s expected to do the fourth "Indiana Jones" and/or his Abraham Lincoln biopic first.
