Will Steven Spielberg direct Matt Helm?

According to reports,  Steven Spielberg is seriously considering directing a movie about fictional secret agent Matt Helm.


Created by author Donald Hamilton, Matt Helm is based on a series of 27 novels about a government agent whose mission is to take down enemy agents


Spielberg’s representatives told the trade that he is attached to produce, but it’s unclear if he’s going to direct. Spielberg is reportedly excited about the project again after the rewrite that Paul Attanasio delivered last week. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are also on board to produce
