Pictures From The White House Set For The New Spielberg’s Movie

Even if you’re not a movie buff, you probably know that there is a new future blockbuster cooking in the lab of the triple Oscar winner, Steven Spielberg.

After the film adaptation of the Tintin comic and a war drama that is about to hit the theaters soon, Spielberg decided to make a movie called Lincoln, a creatively named biographical drama about the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln.

The lead roles are reserved for big names such as Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field, who play Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. The list of celebs goes on with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones and many other great actors with just one last name, so the project sounds really promising.

For shooting the scenes that take place in the White House, a replica of the 1860s building was made using the Capitol building in Richmond, Virginia. With the estimated 50 million dollar budget for the whole movie, the set doesn’t lack the details in the building’s structure or the props from that era. Many curious visitors took the chance to photograph the set and capture the atmosphere of the 19th century with old cannons lined up in front of the White House.

Having a project this big in the process of making surely attracts a lot of attention, so it was no wonder that the state of Virginia offered an additional $5 million in tax credits and other donations to attract the film production to the two locations within the state. Just remember the making of “The Dark Knight Rises” where the Steelers home in Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was turned into a Gotham Rogues home field and caused real excitement among the movie fans.

Whether he’s blowing your mind with Schindler’s List or making you regret the lost 2 hours of life with Indiana and the crystal skull, Spielberg is definitely a director whose work you just can’t miss, so we’re looking forward to seeing Lincoln in 2012 and hoping that it meets our high expectations.

While we’re at it, see if you can recognize from which movies are these top 10 most memorable movie locations.
