Cancelled Movies. Wiki

In the early 1980s, Steven Spielberg announced plans to direct a film adaptation of the Blackhawk comic book series, with Dan Aykroyd attached to play the title character.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The project was canceled and Spielberg chose to direct Raiders of the Lost Ark instead.


  • In April 2018, Warner Bros. revived the Blackhawk project for the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), with Spielberg returning to direct and produce and David Koepp writing the screenplay. Additionally, Spielberg would co-produce the film with Kristie Macosko Krieger and Sue Kroll and it was initially expected to begin after he completed West Side Story. Koepp later added that he is now working on the script, but is unsure if Spielberg will direct.
