The first official photo of Academy Award-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis (“My Left Foot,” “There Will Be Blood”) in "Lincoln" has been revealed and can be seen via Entertainment Weekly below.
"Lincoln" focuses on the last four months of the president's life and the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be forever outlawed. “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition,” director Steven Spielberg says.

The screenplay has been written by the Pulitzer Prize winner, Tony Award winner, and Academy Award nominated writer Tony Kushner.
