A bit of surprising news hit last night when it was announced that Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the Daniel H. Wilson sci-fi novel Robopocalypse was being delayed “indefinitely.”  Spielberg’s spokesperson said that the film cost too much to rush things, and the filmmaker had decided to push the project back.  No timetable was given for the delay, but reports made it sound like Spielberg would be directing something entirely different as his Lincoln follow-up.  Well today it turns out that may not be the case, as Spielberg himself has spoken up to clarify the delay saying the film might only be pushed back six to eight months.  Hit the jump for more. First up, as a refresher, Robopocalypse takes place in a future where artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. »
