Steven Spielberg is back with a new project. His next big film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2026.

After the multiple Oscar-nominated drama “The Fabelmans”. Steven Spielberg (77) has a new project in the works. The veteran director is apparently devoting his new cinema blockbuster to a sci-fi story. The release date has already been set, but fans will have to wait quite a while.

Is the new Spielberg film about UFOs?

What exactly the new film will be about has not yet been officially announced. However, the release date is less mysterious. the industry magazine “Variety” reportsUniversal Pictures is planning the theatrical release of the Spielberg project for May 15, 2026. David Koepp (60), who has worked with Spielberg several times, is writing the screenplay based on a story by the director. He also wrote the scripts for the classic “Jurassic Park” and “War of the Worlds” from 2005.

A few weeks ago, unnamed insider sources told the magazine that Spielberg was planning a new project and that it would probably be a UFO film. Fans can probably expect a real blockbuster, regardless of what the film is ultimately about.

Spielberg is known for hits such as “Jaws,” “ET: The Extra-Terrestrial,” the “Indiana Jones” series, “Hook” and “Catch Me If You Can.” He won a total of three Academy Awards for “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan.” The autobiographical “The Fables” received seven nominations at the 95th Oscars, including for Best Director.
