NEW YORK -- NEW YORK (AP) — Steven Spielberg and Doris Kearns Goodwin are reteaming after their Oscar-winning collaboration on "Lincoln."
DreamWorks Studios announced Wednesday that it has acquired the film rights to Goodwin's upcoming "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft and the Golden Age of Journalism." Spielberg, a principal partner of DreamWorks, last year released his acclaimed adaption of Goodwin's "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln."
Spielberg said that Goodwin has "once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in a battle for power and friendship."
