Daniel Day-Lewis: 'Lincoln' with Steven Spielberg!

Daniel Day-Lewis will star as the 16th President of the United States in the Steven Spielberg-directed flick Lincoln, according to Variety.

The pic is about the “political collision of Abraham Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War.”

Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema’s distant future,” Spielberg said. “I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln.”

Filming begins on the flick in 2012.
