Far be it from me to tell Steven Spielberg how to make a movie, but: He’s got to include the Arizona heat.

And he might, given his past.

Several trade publications report that Spielberg has found his next movie — a coming-of-age film that is said to be loosely based on his growing up in Phoenix.

According to a story in Variety, the yet-unnamed film “will focus on a main character, who is not named Steven, as a young child and teen. The protagonist will be living in Phoenix, Arizona, which is where Spielberg lived in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The film will also examine the character’s relationship with his parents and be split across time periods.”

Michelle Williams is in talks to star in the movie
