Steven Spielberg’s company DreamWorks has won the bidding war for the John Steinbeck novel’s rights. After much debate, the studio will have the privilege of adapting The Grapes of Wrath. has published news that DreamWorks had approached Steinbeck’s estate to acquire the rights to adapt The Grapes of Wrath for the silver screen once again. The novel has already been adapted into a movie before by John Ford. The first adaptation was nominated for seven Oscars and won two.

According to Deadline, Steven Spielberg will not take the director’s seat in this movie. He will be the producer instead. A wise decision seeing as Spielberg is already in charge of directing American Sniper and has other movies to produce. Deadline also mentioned that The Grapes of Wrath was to be adapted into a miniseries by Robert Ford and David Kennedy. However DreamWorks allegedly swooped in and proposed a movie adaptation, which John Steinbeck’s estate preferred.

The Grapes of Wrath is an all-time American literary classic. Its plot is focused on the Joads family’s travel from Oklahoma to California to escape poverty. The timeline of the novel is set during the Great Depression. The protagonist of the story, Tom Joad, was played by Henry Fonda in Robert Ford’s adaptation. There has not been any mention of who will be in the cast of the DreamWorks adaptation yet.

Seeing as the original movie was produced by Fox Studios and that they still have overseas rights for the book, Fox will definitely be involved in Spielberg’s adaptation in some way. If all goes according to plan, the DreamWorks adaptation of The Grapes of Wrath will be ready by the time the novel celebrates its 75th birthday, next year.
