For the second time this year Steven Spielberg has dropped a big film project.

In January, he indefinitely halted progress on the sci-fi movie “Robopocalypse,” and now, Deadline.com reports, he has announced he will no longer direct “American Sniper,” the film adaptation of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s autobiography starring Bradley Cooper.

Spielberg’s tentativeness is nothing new. The legendary director spent 11 years getting “Lincoln” into shape before committing to it.
