Spielberg's "Lincoln"

The Spielberg/Goodwin Lincoln movie appears to be moving towards filming in 2009; that suggests it will have missed the Bicentennial by time of its release. (Check out the bare cupboard of Goodwin's movie news page.)

A couple of howlers from Liam Neeson, cast as Lincoln:

"He supported live theater, which is terrific."

"I've been to Washington, I've held his wallet..."
