The apocalypse has been delayed once again. After surviving the Mayan countdown last year, it looks like we've dodged another bullet with news that Oscar-nominated "Lincoln" director Steven Spielberg has 86'd plans to make a movie adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's sci-fi novel "Robopocalypse."
The movie, which chronicles the spread of an artificial intelligence virus that prompts the planet's machines to rise up against the human race, had been set for a 2014 release. According to the Hollywood Reporter it has now been "postponed indefinitely."
Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway and Chris Hemsworth were in talks to star in the movie, which Spielberg spokesperson Marvin Levy said, was "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."
The $100-million-plus flick was announced in October 2010, before Wilson had even finished the novel. It was adapted for the screen by Drew Goddard, »
