THE Cooper will also produce the film alongside Spielberg and his collaborator Christy Makosko Krieger.
Sources unequivocally state that this is not a remake of the original 1968 film but a new concept centered on the character played by Steve McQueen. Considered one of the actor’s most iconic roles, the film features one of the most famous car chase scenes in film history. The screenplay will be by Josh Singer.
