Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks are working on a remake of the classic Steinbeck novel, The Grapes of Wrath.

The Grapes of Wrath has previously been adapted by John Ford in 1940 and starred Henry Fonda. The film won two oscars out of seven nominations.

Deadline have reported that Spielberg will produce the new film. It’s apt timing for a new film as the novel will celebrate its 75th anniversary next year.

We think Spielberg is the right guy for this project after the great job he did directing Lincoln.
