War of the Worlds just hit theaters this week and director Steven Spielberg is already hard at work filming a new project in Malta. The untitled Universal Pictures drama is about the secret Mossad hit squad that was ordered to assassinate Palestinian terrorists after the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. The New York Times says that Spielberg has sought counsel from advisers ranging from his own rabbi to the former American diplomat Dennis Ross, who in turn has alerted Israeli government officials to the film's thrust. The director has also shown the script to former President Bill Clinton. Apparently, Spielberg reached out to Clinton more than a year ago and again as recently as Tuesday. Shooting started on Wednesday, the same day War of the Worlds hit theaters nationwide. Spielberg's new movie will see release on December 23rd.
