Steven Spielberg went to India on Monday, where he spoke about his life and career during a Q&A session in Mumbai. While there, he also spoke about future projects, including an upcoming DreamWorks film that will be set in Kashmir.
In an interview with The Times of India, he said that DreamWorks and Reliance Entertainment have “finalized” a script for a film set on the Indian-Pakistan border.
“Part of it will take place on the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir,” the Lincoln director said. “But we're still trying to figure out the casting, locations and who's going to direct it.”
Spielberg previously worked in India for 1977’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind and 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
According to Variety, Spielberg also said that the studios will start working on a delayed Martin Luther King Jr. project. “I wouldn’t call it a biopic, it’s more a story of King and the movement and also about how his admiration for Mahatma Gandhi helped to shape his moral core,” the director said.
As for the follow-up to 2011’s The Adventures of Tintin, Spielberg said that it could be released around Christmas 2015, but “Don’t hold me to it.” The sequel will be directed by Peter Jackson, who is currently busy with his Hobbit trilogy. Jackson co-produced the first Tintin, while Spielberg directed.
Spielberg also spoke about the delayed Robopocalypse, calling the project his “next film,” notes The Hollywood Reporter.
