Spielberg will serve as an artistic consultant along with Australian Ric Birch, director of the highly successful opening and closing ceremonies at the Sydney Games in 2000, and Yves Pepin, president of French company, ECA2.
"I am very honored to be named the chief director of the ceremonies," Zhang said at a ceremony at BOCOG's headquarters.
"It is a huge task... but I promise that I will fulfill the task successfully."

"Our one goal is to give the world a taste of peace , friendship, cooperation and understanding," he said.
"Through the visual arts, the performing arts, the art of music, the art of dance, and the art of celebration of life, all of us are devoted to making this Olympic opening and closing ceremonies the most emotional everyone has ever seen."
The opening ceremony of the Beijing Games will take place on August 8, 2008.
