Steven Spielberg's long-gestating (and also just plain long) Abraham Lincoln biopic was thought to be dead at the hands of Paramount, which reportedly passed on the film last week. But no more! According to Spielberg's publicist, Marvin Levy, "Lincoln is alive and well and continues in active development ... Our plans are now to shoot the picture later this year." (No pun intended, presumably.)
