Director Steven Spielberg is eyeing a possible collaboration between actor Javier Bardem and screenwriter Steven Zaillian for the epic adventure Montezuma.

The project is based on a 50-year-old unproduced screenplay by Dalton Trumbo, which Steven Zaillian will rewrite. The 205-page script is considered one of the greatest unmade screenplays in history, which Dalton Trumbo wrote for actor-producer Kirk Douglas and director Martin Ritt in 1965. Dalton Trumbo was one of the "Hollywood Ten," a group of screenwriters who were blacklisted by the film industry after they refused to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committtee's hunt to find Communists in America. Dalton Trumbo spent 11 months in jail for contempt, but Kirk Douglas helped bring Dalton Trumbo back into the business by hiring him to write the 1960 classic Spartacus.
