Eastwood, Spielberg talking thriller

DreamWorks holds onto Morgan's 'Hereafter'

Clint Eastwood is in talks to direct the supernatural thriller “Hereafter” for DreamWorks.

Company, led by principals Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider, picked up the spec penned by “Frost/Nixon” scribe Peter Morgan in March when it was still a part of Paramount Pictures. DreamWorks held onto the project as part of its separation pact with the Melrose studio and has been wooing Eastwood to board the project for months.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is described as in the vein of “The Sixth Sense.”

Kathleen Kennedy is producing.

Eastwood, who has two films in awards season contention this year — “The Changeling” and “Gran Torino” — previously worked with Spielberg on “Flags of Our Fathers” and “Letters From Iwo Jima,” both of which Spielberg produced.
