For his next project, Steven Spielberg will be directing a movie about… Steve Spielberg.

In news being reported by Deadline, sources claim that Spielberg has been in discussions to direct a yet-to-be titled film that is said to be “loosely based on his childhood growing up in Arizona.”

On Monday, the outlet reported that Canadian actor Seth Rogen is set to play the favourite uncle of young Spielberg.

Meanwhile, Michelle Williams is reportedly in talks to play a character “inspired” by Spielberg’s mother.

Given his closeness to the subject matter, it shouldn’t be surprising that Spielberg will also be co-writing the script; Deadline reports that he’ll be collaborating with “Angels in America” playwright Tony Kushner, who previously penned the screenplays for such Spielberg-directed movies as “Munich”, “Lincoln”, and the upcoming “West Side Story”.

The movie will reportedly begin production in the summer, and is expected to be released sometime next year.
