The film had been previously adapted for the silver screen by director Tom Ford in 1940. “The Grapes Of Wrath” is based on the Joads, a poor farming family, during the Great Depression.


Spielberg is only interested in producing the film; he doesn’t show any interest in directing the picture. His next directorial project will be “American Sniper,” which is getting ready for production at Warner Bros. with Bradley Cooper set to star.
