Spielberg Plans Walter Cronkite Biopic

The “Bridge of Spies” team of Steven Spielberg, Matt Charman and Marc Platt are re-teaming for a feature film about legendary newscaster Walter Cronkite for Amblin Partners.

The story will focus on CBS Evening News anchor’s relationship with the Vietnam War and the role that America’s most trusted newsman played in turning public opinion against the conflict.

Spielberg is a long way from committing to direct as Charman still needs to write the script first, but it could happen. Platt will produce.
