'Bourne' Director Paul Greengrass to Replace Steven Spielberg for 'Chicago 7'
Despite the fact that Steven Spielberg has been confirmed to be out of "The Trial of the Chicago 7" directional picture, DreamWorks SKG seems to refuse letting the drama movie to go down the drain. Words are the studio now has Paul Greengrass, the director of the last two "Bourne" movies, including "The Bourne Ultimatum", attached for the project.
First to break out the news was Film School Rejects. Claiming to get the tidbit from Production Weekly's pages, Rejects noted that Weekly has updated its "Chicago 7" listing which pointed out that Greengrass' name has been listed on the director's slot. Still, DreamWorks have yet to make any formal announcement about this subject.
Spielberg dropped out his involvement on this drama film reportedly because he chose to work on "Tintin". Meanwhile, some speculate that him leaving the project was due to the conflict about the written script.
Based on the real trials of the protesters at the 1968 Democratic convention, "Chicago 7" is written by Aaron Sorkin. The movie slated for 2009 release also has Sacha Baron Cohen attached to star, while others, like Will Smith, Taye Diggs, Adam Arkin, Kevin Spacey and Philip Seymour Hoffman, have been rumored to take part.
