Spielberg Plans Film on Munich Olympics Massacre

Hollywood director Steven Spielberg is set to film a movie in June about the 1972 attack on the Israeli Olympic team during the Munich Games. Ben Kingsley is expected to play in the as yet untitled movie. Eric Roth, the screenwriter for "Forrest Gump," has written the script. The project, a co-production between Spielberg's DreamWorks and Universal, has been shrouded in secrecy. Palestinians broke into the Israeli team's quarters on Sept. 5, 1972, killing two of the athletes and taking nine others hostage. The Israelis, their attackers and a German policeman were all killed later in a failed attempt to free the hostages at Munich's airport.
