Paul Dano boards cast of Steven Spielberg's semi-autobiographical moviePTI | Los Angeles | Updated: 09-04-2021 11:18 IST | Created: 09-04-2021 11:18 IST
The untitled movie is said to be loosely based on his childhood growing up in Arizona, as per Variety.
Spielberg co-wrote the script with Tony Kushner, who previously worked with director on movies such as ''Munich'' and ''Lincoln''.
Though the plot details are scarce at the moment, the film will reportedly focus on the main character as a young child and teen.
The protagonist will be living in Phoenix, Arizona, which is where Spielberg lived in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The film will also examine the character’s relationship with his parents and be split across time periods.
Dano, known for movies such as ''Little Miss Sunshine'', ''There Will Be Blood'' and ''12 Years A Slave'', will be playing a version of Spielberg’s father, Arnold.
Each of the characters will have a unique voice separate from the real people who serve as the inspiration.
The project will be Spielberg's follow-up film to his ''West Side Story'' remake, which is expected to release this year.
The film will start shooting later this year with an expectation that it will be released sometime in 2022.
Spielberg will produce the project with Kushner and Kristie Macosko Krieger.
