HOLLYWOOD – Hi, my name is Steven Spielberg, director of such great films as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Lincoln, War Horse, Sugarland Express, Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, Catch Me If You Can, Saving Private Ryan, Amistad, Hook, 1941, The Color Purple, Empire of the Sun, Munich and Always.

You might also know me from my executive producer credits on ER, Falling Skies, the Transformers series and many other TV Shows and films. Oh, I also kind of directed Poltergeist, but shhhhh. 

But today I don’t want to talk to you as the director of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Tin Tin the Secret of the Unicorn and certainly not as the director of The Terminal … to tell you the truth I always try and forget that one. 

No. I’m here to talk to you as a normal human being. A simple man. Cast from your mind Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Duel. Not to mention the beguiling science fiction fairy tales A.I. and E.T. And let’s not get into my cameo role in The Blues Brothers, or those documentaries I made about the Second World War and President Obama. And what’s the point in dredging up the segment of The Twilight Zone movie and those episodes of Columbo I was involved with? I was a young man, a kid and no one knew me. It just isn’t relevant to the point I want to make and this very important issue which I would like to shine a light on today.

So PLEASE sign the petition and remember to give generously. Thank You.

Steven Spielberg


LONDON – After filming A.I. and then the announcement of the production of Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon script as a mini-series, Steven Spielberg has now announced he’s moving into Stanley Kubrick‘s house in Hertfordshire, near St. Albans.

‘I’ll be dressing up in his clothes,’ said Hook director Steven Spielberg. ‘I’d grow a beard like his as well, but I’ve already got one.’

Childwickbury Manor was Kubrick’s home from the late seventies on, as well as the nerve centre for his film making. Stanley Kubrick’s widow – Christiane – said that it was nice to have a little bit of company, even if, at first, she had been a little put out by the Empire of the Sun director’s sudden uninvited intrusion.

He loved Stanley so I know it all comes from a good place, but he’s been digging in the garden and I’m not entirely sure why.

Mr. Spielberg’s declared intention to make Kubrick’s unfilmed Napoleonic epic into a mini-series was greeted by a massive heat wave in Australia, with devastating bush fires and droughts.
