For only the second time in Spielberg's movie career are we getting a soundtrack that is not composed by John Williams.  In a recent interview with Jake Coyle, the director is promoting his latest movie, a spy thriller starring Tom Hanks called "Bridge of Spies.  In the interview Spielberg tells us that the decision to not have John Williams score one of his movies is just a blip and Johnny Williams will be back to do BFG.  He did say he is excited to work with Johnny's replacement, Thomas Newman.  However does this statement more or less confirm that Spielberg and John Williams will be collaborating once more for READY PLAYER ONE?  It looks likely.

Here's the quote from the article in which Spielberg talks about John Williams:

Spielberg: Johnny Williams will be back to do "The BFG." We've only not worked together twice in 42 years. The first one was "The Color Purple" in 1985 and the second time was because Johnny had a small medical procedure that precluded him from writing and scoring my movie in the window that he was going to do it. He's fine, he's 100 percent back to work on "Star Wars," but it sadly precluded him from working on "Bridge of Spies." I was able to work with Thomas Newman, who I'm a huge fan of. This is just a blip and we're both sad about it, but we're excited to get back together for "BFG" now.

Elle Fanning, “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” star Olivia Cooke and “Mistress America” breakout Lola Kirke

It seems that casting discussions for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One is in full swing.  That's according to The Wrap.

Elle Fanning, “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” star Olivia Cooke and “Mistress America” breakout Lola Kirke are three of the top contenders for the female lead according to the website.  Fanning, Cooke and Kirke will test for the role of Art3mis, the avatar of Samantha Cook within the Oasis, which is the virtual reality universe at the center of the sci-fi story.

Fanning will of course have previous experience with a Spielberg movie all be it an executive-produced movie as she appeared in the J.J. Abrams directed 2011 movie, Super 8.

Ready Player One will see a release in December 2017 and is shaping up already to be one of his most anticipated movies in years.

Today's heavyweight entertainment websites have been reporting that Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks could end up anywhere but Disney in a year's time when their deal ends.  Some sites state that Universal Studios are the frontrunner to team up in a new deal.  However let's not forget Warner Bros. in which Spielberg has any upcoming project association with.  If Ready Player One becomes a hit, don't be surprised to see Spielberg taking his talents to the movie studio in which he had collaboration with in the 70's and 80's.

Deadline tell us:

While there is still one more year on DreamWorks’ pact with The Walt Disney Co., the live-action company overseen by director Steven Spielberg could end up at any studio in town at the moment. “There have been no negotiations, no proposals between DreamWorks or Steven and Universal,” said one source with knowledge of the situation. Said another, DreamWorks could end up at Paramount, Fox, Universal or even Warner Bros. where the director is moving forward on the film Ready Player One.

“It’s a year away. He’ll go to whomever can give him the best deal,” said one source who knows Spielberg. “It’s so pre-mature right now to say where he’s going to end up. He’ll be talking to everyone. I think for sentimental reasons, people would like to see him to go back to Universal because that’s where he started, but he gets a huge piece of the gross and a lot of money. He cares about the money and distribution like any good businessman. He’ll kick every tire in town before he decides.” Spielberg’s deal is a lucrative one as he gets a hefy piece of the gross and demands a lot of money.

The box office track record has been mixed at best for DreamWorks under Disney spanning 11 releases which have made $1.5 billion at the global box office, a bulk of which had financial participation by India’s Reliance Entertainment. That amount is far cry from the $4.5B DreamWorks minted at Paramount across 29 titles released between 2005 and 2010, the biggest titles of which were Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen ($836.3M worldwide B.O.) and Transformers ($709.7M).

Directed by Steven Spielberg, BRIDGE OF SPIES is a dramatic thriller which tells the story of James Donovan (played by Tom Hanks), a Brooklyn insurance claims lawyer who finds himself thrust into the centre of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

Hello sweeties! Just announced by the BBC, Professor River Song (Alex Kingston) will be reuniting with her husband, the Doctor, for a festive adventure this Christmas! It will be the first time that she encounters the twelfth incarnation of her beloved, as played by Peter Capaldi. Will it be the last? Time will tell.

Award winning Alex Kingston comments on her reappearance, “To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humour and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through, we had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September? Why not!”
The episode is written by Steven Moffat, and begins filming this week.

Steven Moffat, Lead Writer and Executive Producer, adds, “Another Christmas, another special for Doctor Who - and what could be more special than the return of Alex Kingston as Professor River Song? The last time the Doctor saw her she was a ghost. The first time he met her, she died. So how can he be seeing her again? As ever, with the most complicated relationship in the universe, it’s a matter of time...”
Doctor Who returns Saturday, September 19 for a 12 episode run, and the Christmas special will air on Friday, December 25.

CBS announced today that Under the Dome will come to end with the episode airing September 10. Originally planned as a limited run, the series, based on Stephen King's novel and produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, has lasted three seasons -- so it's probably fair to say it had a good run.

"Two years ago, Under the Dome broke new ground in the summer and became an instant hit on CBS, as well as with viewers around the world," said CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler. "Dome’s event storytelling and multi-platform business model paved the way for more original summer programming with the successful rollouts of Extant and Zoo. We’re excited to present the final chapter in Chester’s Mill as the story comes full circle, with the Dome coming down as dramatically as it went up."

We'll find out what happens when the dome finally comes down in the concluding episodes of Under the Dome, airing Thursdays on CBS at 9/8c.
