On the heels of their collaboration on “Ready Player One,” Steven Spielberg is re-teaming with Warner Bros. Pictures on a feature film based on DC Comics’ World War II action-adventure hero “Blackhawk,” with the Academy Award set to direct.

“We are so proud to be the studio behind Steven Spielberg’s latest hit, and are thrilled to be working with him again on this new action adventure,” said Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “We can’t wait to see what new ground he will break in introducing `Blackhawk’ to movie audiences worldwide.”

The screenplay is being written by David Koepp, who collaborated with Spielberg as a screenwriter on “Jurassic Park,” “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “War of the Worlds” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

Spielberg will produce the film together with Kristie Macosko Krieger, under the Amblin Entertainment banner.

“It was wonderful working with the team at Warner Bros. to bring `Ready Player One’ to the screen,” the director said. “They bring a blend of passion and professionalism to everything they do and have a tremendous history in this genre. I am excited to reunite with them on `Blackhawk.”’

Spielberg’s next two films are the fifth installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise and “West Side Story.”
