Spielberg

Film Director

It’s impossible to think of a filmmaker more influential, prolific, popular or profitable than Spielberg has been over his five-decade career, which has taken him from the popcorn pleasures of “Jaws” (1975) and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981) to the impactful “Saving Private Ryan” (1998) and “Schindler’s List” (1993), which earned him a long-deserved Oscar for best director. In 2019, he began the daunting task of adapting “West Side Story,” first brought to the big screen by director Robert Wise in 1961. Even more intriguing, he’s taking a rare turn at the keyboard to write a horror series for longtime friend and collaborator Jeffrey Katzenberg’s upcoming mobile streaming platform Quibi that will only be viewable when a cell phone knows it’s dark outside.
