Spielberg to do a film on the massacre at Munich (via JTA):
Steven Spielberg will begin production on a film on the 1972 Olympic Games massacre in the summer.

Tight secrecy surrounds the feature film, which will focus on the hunt for the Black September terrorists responsible for the death of 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympics. At one point, reports said the delay was caused by fears that Muslim extremists might target locations to be used in the movie.

However, the reason reportedly was that Spielberg was dissatisfied with the script. Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner (“Angels in America”) is writing a new screenplay.
