Spielberg casts Sally Field as Abe Lincoln’s wife
Question of the Day
The casting announcement Wednesday gives “Lincoln” a pair of two-time Academy Award winners in lead roles.
Daniel Day-Lewis was a best-actor winner for “My Left Foot” and “There Will Be Blood.” He will star as Lincoln.
Field is a best-actress recipient for “Norma Rae” and “Places in the Heart.” She is playing Mary Todd Lincoln.
The film is based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book, “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln,” which examines the president’s relationship with key advisers.
Shooting begins this fall, with the film due out in 2012.
