First unofficial photo of Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln
It's been over a year since I posted about Daniel Day-Lewis replacing Liam Neeson as Abraham Lincoln in the aptly titled film, Lincoln. The movie has been an on-again, off-again project in Hollywood; but it is most definitely on. The film is to be directed by Steven Spielberg, and should start filming soon.
We know Day-Lewis is an incredible actor who immerses himself in his roles. He basically becomes the characters. I have no doubt he will kill it as the United States' 16th president. I still don't know much about the film, as far as what it will be about. Will it be a full biopic? Focus on Lincoln's presidency? Slavery? Just his last year? We'll have to wait and see. All I can say is this: I wish I took any job I've ever had as seriously as Day-Lewis does acting.
