Spielberg takes on Dahl’s BFG
News of Steven Spielberg’s latest directing mission is always worth heeding. It seems the great man will next be embarking on a live-action adaptation of Roald Dahl’s much-loved The BFG (that’s Big Friendly Giant to you, Dahl agnostic). Spielberg’s DreamWorks bought the rights four years ago as a project for John Madden. Once that director signed up for the sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Spielberg began to ponder. The book was filmed once before as an animation, voiced by David Jason.
