Veteran Hollywood director Steven Spielberg is set to direct a new movie that is loosely based on his childhood days and growing up in Arizona.
Variety reports that the new film will be Spielberg's follow-up film to his remake of West Side Story, which is expected to be released this year.
The upcoming project has a script co-written by Tony Kushner, who had previously worked with Spielberg on films such as Munich and Lincoln.
As of now, Oscar-nominated actor Michelle Williams is in negotiations to star in the film in a major role.
While plot details are unavailable at the moment, reports state that the film will focus on the protagonist as a young child and teen. The film will also examine his relationship with his parents and be split across time periods.
Shooting will start later this year and the film is expected to be released sometime in 2022.
Williams is also set to star in Todd Haynes' MGM movie Fever, and the actor is also reteaming with Kelly Reichardt on the A24 project, Showing Up. She recently finished filming for the Venom sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
