Following yesterday's story that Steven Spielberg has hit the breaks on his Robopocalypse flick, Entertainment Weekly caught up with the famed director for a bit more on the subject. Read on for the latest.
“We found that the film was costing a lot of money, and I found a better way to tell the story more economically but also much more personally," Spielberg tells EW. "I found the personal way into Robopocalypse, and so I just told everybody to go find other jobs; I’m starting on a new script, and we’ll have this movie back on its feet soon.”
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.
