Steven Spielberg has signed up for his next project “Harvey,” an adaptation of the Mary Chase Pulitzer Prize-winning play about a man played by Jimmy Stewart in the 1950 film version — who befriends a 6½-foot-tall invisible rabbit.
The project will be co-produced by Century Fox and Dreamworks. It was reported that Dreamworks is going to finance 50% of the production through its new funding relationship with Reliance.
Spielberg aims to begin production early next year and stars for the project have not attached yet, but the helmer is expected to reach out Tom Hanks and Will Smith to find someone whose availability meshes with the planned start dates.
Spielberg will produce with Don Gregory, and Elizabeth Gabler and Carla Hacken will oversee it. Their Fox 2000 acquired the rights last year.
