Nikke Finke's Deadline Hollywood reports that Pittsburgh native Zachary Quinto, who distinguished himself by playing Spock in the reinvention of "Star Trek," could be starring as George Gershwin in a movie by Steven Spielberg.
The project comes because Spielberg dropped out of "Harvey," a remake of the James Stewart classic.
Deadline Hollywood reports: "... DreamWorks is even supplying accent and dialogue coaches for Quinto, and shooting could begin as soon as April. Doug Wright wrote the script, and Marc Platt and singer/pianist Michael Feinstein are producing."
