Hollywood heavyweight Steven Spielberg's next film will focus on the tragedy of the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany.

The Minority Report director is hoping to cast SIR Ben Kingsley in the movie, which tells the story of how 11 Israeli athletes were kidnapped and murdered by Palestinian activists during the sporting event.

Filming on the project - which has been penned by OSCAR-winning screenwriter ERIC ROTH - is due to begin in June (04) and Spielberg has already started scouting for suitable locations in Europe.

Spielberg's next cinema release will be The Terminal, starring longtime collaborator Tom Hanks.
