Veteran American filmmaker Steven Spielberg has lined up his next project, which will be released in 2026.

Universal Pictures is backing the movie, which will open in theaters on May 15, 2026. 

It’s unclear what the untitled project — which the studio described as a “new original event film” — is about, though Variety previously reported that Spielberg is working on a UFO story.

David Koepp, whose previous work with the filmmaker includes “Jurassic Park,” “War of the Worlds” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, is penning the script from a story by Spielberg. Kristie Macosko Krieger will produce the film.

Spielberg, who does not need much of an introduction, is Hollywood’s most commercially successful filmmaker, having helmed blockbusters like “Jaws” and “E.T.”, on top of the “Indiana Jones” and “Jurassic Park” franchises. 

He is also a three-time Oscar winner for “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan.”

Spielberg's most recently directed “The Fabelmans” for Universal. 

Inspired by the acclaimed director's upbringing, the story followed a film-obsessed teenager growing up in Arizona and Northern California. 

While “The Fabelmans” received several Oscar nominations, it struggled at the box office, earning just $45 million worldwide.
