Steven Spielberg Not Directing Harvey After All
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Well, after all the drama and all of the questions, The Bearded One will not be directing the remake of HARVEY after all. What’s interesting about the article from Variety is that in it, they mention that he originally asked Tom Hanks to play the lead, but that Hanks quickly refused. Then they go on to say that the studio made several attempts to get Robert Downey Jr. on board, but he never signed on either. So it looks like two of the best actors working today realized something that Mr. Spielberg could not; there’s no need for a remake of HARVEY. Let’s hope Spielberg moves on to something more challenging and more creative than a needless remake.
