Steven Spielberg‘s next film will be Indiana Jones 5, which is presently due out July 10,2020 We formerly reported that Spielberg would follow Indy with a remake of West Side Story and he was presently casting the lead functions. Range now reports that Spielberg may be shuffling up his slate. He just recently held a table check out for an untitled biopic about popular author Leonard Bernstein, who composed the music for West Side Story Bernstein was likewise a closeted homosexual who had a complex marital relationship with Chilean-born American starlet Felicia Cohn Montealegre Undoubtedly a giant of American music, a Bernstein biopic is a story worth informing with the type of individual touches that might produce engaging drama.

But the Bernstein biopic isn’t really set in stone. Range states that this is simply Spielberg’s procedure for how he selects exactly what to do next. He was going to follow up Ready Player One with The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, however that petered out when he could not discover an ideal young star to play Mortara, so he moved on to direct The Post rather. A comparable circumstance is occurring with West Side Story, not because Spielberg is proceeding, however that the Bernstein biopic might come together a little faster, where case West Side Story would come 2nd.

Either method, Variety keeps in mind that whatever movie he chooses as his follow-up to Indiana Jones 5, he will not shoot another film up until the start of 2019, and he’ll be utilizing the rest of 2018 to prep. Personally, I’m great with whatever Spielberg wishes to do, and definitely discover West Side Story and a Leonard Bernstein biopic as interesting tasks for the director. It stays to be seen how much of 2019 he’ll invest on Indiana Jones prior to moving on to a follow-up.

Spielberg’s brand-new film, Ready Player One, will premiere at SXSW prior to opening on March 28 th.
