'Blackhawk' Movie Recruits Spielberg

Looks like DC has a big name attached to one of their future movies. Legendary director and producer Steven Spielberg is on board to bring the Blackhawk comic property to life. The Blackhawk Squadron was born in Military Comics #1 published by Quality Comics in 1941. The group of mostly pan-European flying aces fought many an enemy and went on some fantastical adventures. DC Comics, then National Periodical Publications, acquired and continued the Blackhawk comics after Quality folded.

The screenplay for the Blackhawk movie will be written by frequent Spielberg collaborator David Koepp. Spielberg's role in the production hasn't been specified, but Warner Bros. says that he was signed on "with an eye toward" directing. If he does end up directing Blackhawk, it would be after his Indiana Jones V and West Side Story projects.
