More For Spielberg's Chicago 7?
Will Smith and Kevin Spacey among others
Vanity Fair have been asnoopin'. While on the set of the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull the US mag's reporter snuck a look at some casting possibilities for Steven Spielberg's upcoming Chicago 7. That kind of thing will usually get you assassinated by a movie studio, but since they spied it, we'll report it.
As reported yesterday, Chicago 7 focuses on the conspiracy trial that followed protests at the 1968 Democratic convention and is already set to star Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman. According to Vanity Fair, a collection of headshots left lying around on the Indy set confirm that Philip Seymour Hoffman is also on board to play William Kunstler, with Will Smith, Kevin Spacey, Taye Diggs and Adam Arkin also in consideration for roles.
Is there anybody Spielberg can't get to star in his movies? If he wanted Elvis, a dodo and the Lindbergh baby to play the Three Stooges, they'd probably do it.
