Steven Spielberg, Javier Bardem, Steve Zaillian Circle “Montezuma-Cortez” Epic From Writer Dalton Trumbo
Deadline are reporting that Steven Spielberg has his sights on ‘Montezuma,’ an epic tale of the kinship and ultimately the bloody collision between Montezuma and Cortez as the latter led the Spanish infiltration into Mexico. According to the outlet, Javier Bardem has sparked to playing the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortez, and that the catalyst here is a nearly 50-year old script by Dalton Trumbo that is being rewritten by Steve Zaillian, who teamed with Spielberg on the Oscar-winning ‘Schindler’s List.’ Zaillian is currently producing the Moses epic ‘Exodus,’ with Ridley Scott directing Christian Bale in the lead role. The outlet add that this is “all just coming together, maybe too soon for Spielberg to do next.”
This potential Steven Spielberg project could reportedly be retitled ‘Cortez,’ since the viewpoint will be from the latter character to be played by fellow Spaniard Javier Bardem. The project, considered one of the great unmade scripts in moviedom, has an illustrious history. Dalton Trumbo wrote it for actor/producer Kirk Douglas, with whom he did the classics ‘Spartacus’ and ‘Lonely Are the Brave.’ Trumbo turned in a 205-page draft in 1965, when Martin Ritt was supposed to direct Douglas in the film, yet it never came to fruition.
Speaking to the good folks over at Empire Magazine (quotes via CBM) on the set of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ Chris Evans opened up about the much anticipated Marvel movie. “I don’t think Marvel’s ever done anything like this. The [Russo] brothers said right from the start that we were really doing a ’70s thriller. And I think just Cap’s abilities mesh well with that kind of genre. I mean, his powers are very meat and potatoes. Faster. Stronger. Punch. Kick. That works with those types of movies. It would be more difficult to put, say, Hulk in that kind of context.”
Chris Evans also goes on to discuss about getting to fully embrace the fish-out-of-water element to the Captain America/Steve Rogers character, “We really haven’t explored his adjustment period. In The Avengers we had so many characters you have to address, you don’t really have time to sit with any single one. In this movie there’s a lot going on for Steve. He’s trying to acclimatize to the modern world. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s about trying to find how he fits. He’s a man from the 1940s. He’s just woken up. For everybody else, it’s been a slow burn to get to where we are in 2014. But for him, suddenly there’s the internet, cellphones and The Patriot Act. The technology’s new to him and so is the access the government has to that technology.”
