Fox News spoke with Steven Spielberg at the Governor's Ball last night and says the director revealed he is taking a year off after having produced and directed both "War of the Worlds" and "Munich".

His plans for 2006 will be preparing his Abraham Lincoln biopic along with producing several smaller projects.

Spielberg said he will still direct "Indiana Jones 4" but this would indicate it'll be a while off yet. Spielberg confirmed his "Jurassic Park" & "War of the Worlds" scribe David Koepp is working on the latest draft.
