In cinematic circles, there are a few names for this time of year. Awards-minded individuals call the fall “Oscar season” because this is when the campaigning for little gold men gets particularly hot and heavy. The late film critic Roger Ebert used to call it “good movie season,” because the byproduct of all that campaigning was all of the studios’ most promising and intellectually stimulating titles getting released together in the span of two months. In recent years, I’ve started to call the fall by a different name: Biopic season, because barely a week goes by without a new biographical film.

Despite plenty of momentum and the starpower of Bradley Cooper in the lead role, Spielberg, along with production company DreamWorks, has dropped the project and vanished to wherever he goes when he needs to decide what movie he wants to direct next.

It wasn't long ago that Chris Kyle, author of the bestselling memoir 'American Sniper' and referred to as the deadliest Navy SEAL sniper, was tragically shot and killed at a gun range in Texas.

In response to his death, Cooper, who was reported to portray Kyle in an 'American Sniper' movie, has decided to fast-track the production of the project, in which he plans to portray the ex-Navy SEAL.
