Daniel Day Lewis, Daniel Day-Lewis is cast as the sixteenth U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in a film that Steven Spielberg will direct, as reported today in a statement.

The announcement was made by filmmaker and Stacey Snider, CEO of DreamWorks.

“Daniel Day-Lewis have always been regarded as one of the greatest actors, had lived in the silent era, the golden age of cinema sometime in the distant future,” said Spielberg. “I am grateful and inspired because our paths finally crossed,” he added.

“Throughout his career, (Day-Lewis) has been exceptionally selective when choosing the material (which works),” said Snider, “which makes us feel even more fortunate that you have chosen to join us.”

The film, entitled “Lincoln” is based on the book “Team of Rivals” by Pulitzer Prize winner Doris Kearns, and has a screenplay by Tony Kushner.

The story will focus on political collision that faced Lincoln and his cabinet on the road to the abolition of slavery and the Civil War ended.

The shooting of the film will begin in autumn 2011 and its release is planned for late 2012.
