[Update: Spielberg says Robopocalypse isn't "dead." Read on for more.]
Iconic director Steven Spielberg has eight science-fiction movies under his belt and there’s been much a healthy amount of excitement for his ninth exploration of the genre, with the developing Robopocalypse.
The Daniel H. Wilson novel adaptation (scripted by Cloverfield writer and Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard) was gearing up to begin pre-production this year, with a cast featuring Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) in prominent roles. However, the project’s hit some development snags and is now postponed until further notice.
“[The project is] too important and the script is not ready, and it’s too expensive to produce. It’s back to the drawing board to see what is possible.”
