"Steven Spielberg will no longer direct the Harvey remake at 20th Century Fox, reports Variety.
The studio was preparing an early 2010 start for the film, an adaptation of Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about a man who befriends a six and a half foot tall invisible rabbit.
The trade says the project has been a challenge to pull together since Spielberg committed last August. One of the biggest challenges has been setting a star to play Elwood P. Dowd, the character played by James Stewart in the 1950 film. Spielberg's first choice was Tom Hanks, but he didn't want to take over a role played by Stewart. Spielberg and Fox also courted Robert Downey Jr. who never committed but did make suggestions on rewrites.
It it unknown what Spielberg may direct instead."
Well, here's a few options -
Interstellar (A space travel story about a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole into another dimension.)
Abraham Lincoln (a biopic of the 16th President of the United States, played by Liam Neeson)
The 39 Clues (The story revolves around the Cahills - the most powerful family the world has ever known - the source of whose power is a mystery that can only be unraveled by assembling 39 clues hidden around the world throughout history.)
The Adventures of Tintin 3 (somebody please convince Spielberg and Peter Jackson to do this movie TOGETHER!)
Indiana Jones V (the fifth adventure of the most famous adventurer in film history)
Jurassic Park IV (anything's possible, right?)
