Spielberg ''no longer attracted'' to action films
London, October 23 : Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg is turning his back on action movies, insisting he has no plans to direct another high-octane blockbuster.
Spielberg made a name for himself in Hollywood shooting big-budget sci-fi and adventure movies including Jaws and the Indiana Jones franchise, but he now wants to explore other genres.
The director tells 60 Minutes he was drawn to his latest movie Lincoln, about U. S. President Abraham Lincoln, as it is less action-packed than many of his previous titles, the Daily Express reported.
In the TV interview, which aired in the U. S. on Sunday, he says, "I knew I could do the action in my sleep at this point in my career. In my life, the action doesn''t hold any... it doesn''t attract me anymore." (ANI)
