This is the first look at Daniel Day-Lewis playing Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln. This is not to be confused with that vampire flick that was out a couple months ago. Lincoln is directed by Steven Spielberg based on a book by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Tony Kushner and Paul Webb both worked on the screenplay.
Other than Daniel Day-Lewis, the film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Jackie Earle Haley, Sally Field, Jared Harris, David Strathairn, Lee Pace, James Spader, John Hawkes, Dakin Matthews, David Warshofsky, S. Epatha Merkerson, Gloria Reuben, Gregory Itzin, Julie White, Elizabeth Marvel, Joseph Cross, Hal Holbrook, David Oyelowo, Tim Blake Nelson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Walton Goggins, Adam Driver, and Bruce McGill. This is quite a large and impressive cast, and I only listed the more recognizable actors.
I cannot wait to see the first trailer, which is probably right around the corner.
Lincoln is in theatres in a limited release on November 9, 2012 and then goes wider on November 16, 2012.
