Spielberg Postpones Film Over Terrorist Fears

Legendary director STEVEN SPIELBERG has postponed his latest movie VENGEANCE because he's concerned it will become a target for Islamic terrorists.

Production on VENGEANCE - about the successful hunt for the 17 Palestinians who attacked the Israeli Olympic team at the 1972 Munich games - was set to start in June (04), but the Jewish SCHINDLER'S LIST director is anxious because one of the terrorists has never been found.

Spielberg's spokesman MARVIN LEVY told website PAGESIX.COM, "Steven is getting script pages every day. TROY's ERIC BANA is still set to star in the movie, scheduled for a 2006 release.

"But the postponement has resulted in Oscar-winning BEN KINGSLEY dropping out. There were a lot of sources for this movie from many mediums."
