I'm very excited by this. Neeson as Lincoln is inspired although I hear Tom Hanks has always wanted to do it (especially as I believe he's semi related to the famous President). I would have thought Neeson's tragic loss of his wife might have hampered this but it looks like he's already throwing himself back into his work.

I think this is Spielberg's next project after Tintin and I believe he's already lined up Sally Field to play the First Lady but the most interesting rumour I've heard is that he want's Indy himself in the flick.

If Harrison Ford agrees, he'd be playing Vice President Andrew Johnson, the guy who took over the presidency when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.

I think Neeson would be perfect for the role and to hear that Ford may also be cast in this movie, well this just proves to be stella casting. I've waited for this movie for a while now and simply can't wait!!!

Liam Neeson Quits Spielberg's "Lincoln"   Though he's been attached for many years, Liam Neeson has revealed to GMTV via Digital Spy that he's no longer involved in Steven Spielberg's long-gestating "Lincoln" biopic. "I'm not actually playing Lincoln now. I was attached to it for a while, but it's now...I'm past my sell-by date" said Neeson during a talk show interview. The actor is probably referring to age - Neeson is 58 and Lincoln died at 56. The film is also a long way off from production with Tony Kushner's script still undergoing revisions. Spielberg is committed to shooting "War Horse" next.

I reckon The Berg will get him back... make-up is a wonderful thing and it's not like Neeson looks his age.

With the new performance capture technology Spielberg could render the real Lincoln's face onto an actor (Neeson or someone else).

I hope he doesn't, though...

This look's like a masterpiece in the making! And Daniel Day Lewis. My god! What an actor! Up there with the greats. He was simply breath-taking in There Will Be Blood and Gangs of New York, you just couldn't keep your eyes off him. And this film look's like it will be the same. Whilst great actor's like De Niro and Al Pacino have simmered down of late, and their recent outputs very poor - Daniel Day Lewis keeps going strong. He's worked with one of the finest directors of the past couple of decades in Scorsese, and I just cannot wait to see what Spielberg does with Lewis' whole cache of acting amunition!
