Variety is reporting that Steven Spielberg is excited about a new script based on novelist Donald Hamilton’s super-spy character, Matt Helm.
The script was written by Paul Attanasio, (“The Sum of All Fears,” “The Good German,”) and is reportedly more Jason Bourne and James Bond than the previous Matt Helm movies. (Those starred Dean Martin and were four in total. Having seen them, I’d recommend you watch something else. They’re not terrible, but they’re not great either.) Spielberg’s next planned film is the first in the “Tintin” series.
