Cable network Turner Classic Movies is currently developing a brand new, 90-minute documentary on the career of Steven Spielberg entitled, simply enough, “Spielberg on Spielberg.”

Spielberg associate Richard Schickel (who directed the Spielberg-produced documentary “Shooting War” in 2000) will be producing the feature doc that according to trade publication Variety will feature an “extensive interview with the director supplemented with clips of his movies.”

Schickel interviewed Spielberg in 2005 for two very separate projects including last summer’s TCM sci-fi documentary “Watch the Skies,” and Time’s cover story “Spielberg Takes on Terror” on the film “Munich.”

I´m not agree: this is not a documentary, this is a work for TV. Documentary is cinema.

Thx for this post; this was the first time I heard of the project (…maybe that means I’m behind on reading!). It will be intriguing to see how Schickel visually treats the storyline of Spielberg’s career & craft momentum on screen. –Looking forward to it.
