Rumour of the day: Steven Spielberg is reportedly interested in making a film version of the classic Chinese novel Journey To The West. According to some mainland news sources, the director was in Beijing last month and talked with several local film industry members about the idea of a big-budget Hollywood version of the monkey king and his fantasy adventure. We can already hear the score of composer John Williams.
