Anyone else excited for this film? I've been waiting for this movie to come out since it was announced 5+ years ago in Spielbergian fan sites that he was taking the book "Team of rivals" and making it into a film. Liam Neeson was originally contracted to be Lincoln, but for reasons I don't think were ever made known to the public he backed out - in fact the entire original cast, save for Sally Field (Mary Todd Lincoln), was recast and here finally we are!
It looks like it's going to be really good. Still not sure how I feel about Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln - but that's just based on the previews. Gotta wait and see the whole thing before I have a full opinion!
So far neither theatre here has gotten the go ahead from the distributers to show the film, though, so I might be out of luck till it's on DVD... but it's Spielberg, how could they not show it?!
