(Newser) – Steven Spielberg pulled a rabbit out of his hat today and signed on to adapt the Pulitzer Prize–winning play Harvey as his next film, Variety reports. First put on the big screen in 1950 starring Jimmy Stewart, the film about a man's friendship with a giant, invisible bunny is slated to begin production next year. It will kick off DreamWorks' new distribution and funding deal with Reliance and Disney.
