Report: Steven Spielberg ‘Involved Strategically’ in Biden Campaign, Convention Planning


Multiple reports indicate that Hollywood director Steven Spielberg is strategically working with President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign and is helping to plan the Democratic National Convention.

Puck News’s Matt Belloni was the first to report Spielberg “has been quietly but actively working with the Joe Biden campaign to help choreograph August’s Democratic National Convention in Chicago,” as his colleague Dylan Byers pointed out in a post on X.

His work with the campaign also includes “participating in multiple strategy sessions on how to best tell the president’s story,” Belloni wrote.

The report was confirmed by Deadline and the Hollywood Reporter Friday afternoon, with the Reporter’s Zoe G. Phillips writing Spielberg is “joining the Biden campaign” and Deadline’s Dominic Patten noting he will be “involved strategically” in both the campaign and convention.

Spielberg’s representatives did not respond to comment requests from the outlets, but one “well-placed source” told Deadline the Poltergeist director “wants to be as helpful as possible to the president.”

“He believes this is one of the most important elections in the nation’s history,” the source added to the outlet.
