Spielberg promises a picture set on the Indo-Pakistani border

For a moment, I thought that Steven Spielberg was leaving his Hollywood comfort zone WAY behind to try something edgy, political, current in the extreme.

He’s making a movie that’s set on the volatile border between India and Pakistan, where Islamist state meets Infidel state, up close and dangerous.

But he’s just producing it. He talked obliquely about the production with The Times of India during a long visit in which he met with the biggest single financier of “Lincoln,” who is Indian.

He also mentioned a Martin Luther King picture which may have an Indian connection (King admiring Gandhi, etc.). Maybe he was serious, as this is where his money is coming from. Maybe he was just being nice to his hosts.
