Steven Spielberg saddles up “War Horse”

By Staff

Two years after splitting his fans with “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” Steven Spielberg has decided to direct “War Horse,” a film about a boy and his friendship with a horse throughout World War I.

Disney and DreamWorks plan to unspool the film on August 10, 2011.

“Its heart and its message provide a story that can be felt in every country,” Spielberg told Variety.

“War Horse” is based on a 1982 children’s novel by Michael Morpurgo as well as a London stage play written by Nick Stafford.

It’s not unusual for Spielberg to release two films in a given year, the last time being 2005 with “War of the Worlds” and “Munich.” Also due Dec. 23, 2011 is Spielberg’s 3D take on French comic book “The Adventures of Tin-Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn.”

Spielberg is also developing two other projects, “Robopocalypse” and the biographical film “Gershwin.”
