One of the issues for the Oscar campaigners behind Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" is that he and his usual crew have been filming "Lincoln" in Richmond, Virginia. Check out this set photo of Spielberg at the State Capitol with Daniel Day- Lewis as President Abraham Lincoln.
Meanwhile, anyone who wants Day-Lewis to consider their project has to sit on their hands until he finishes filming the movie. From the moment he accepts a role until the final day of shooting, he is not to be approached with anything else. His immersion as Lincoln is 100 %. Great beard.
