Breaking: Steven Spielberg is going to push back Robopocalypse, the giant science fiction pic that he was scheduled to direct this spring for Fox and Disney through DreamWorks. Spielberg, who must be wiped out after shooting and promoting Lincoln, isn’t dropping out of the movie, I’m told. Rather, he just didn’t want to rush an expensive film, and wanted more time to work on it. Based on the Daniel H. Wilson novel and with a script by Drew Goddard, Robopocalypse was to star Chris Hemsworth and Anne Hathaway and concerns a battle for survival after mankind generates its first mass intelligence computer brain only to see it escape. Now, there will be instant speculation on whether Spielberg will take on a project like the widely rumored Moses epic Gods And Kings, which Stuart Hazeldine and Michael Green scripted at Warner Bros, and which finds itself in competition »
