Steven Spielberg Sets 'The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara' to Direct Before 'Indiana Jones 5'

12 April 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

After Steven Spielberg's acclaimed historical drama Lincoln (above) opened in theaters late in 2012, the filmmaker decided not to move forward with his planned adaptation of action epic Robopocalypse. He then agreed to direct American Sniper, though he dropped out of that project in August 2013. Eventually, however, Spielberg moved on to Cold War thriller Bridge of Spies, and since then he's been on a roll. Bridge of Spies received six Academy Award nominations, including best picture, and Mark Rylance won the Oscar for best supporting actor. After the film wrapped production last year, Spielberg moved on quickly to The Bfg, an adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantasy story for children that also features Rylance; it's due for release on July 1.

Goddard Offers "Robopocalypse" Film Update

6 January 2016 3:42 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two years ago came word that the Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's "Robopocalypse" was indefinitely postponed by DreamWorks and the director due to sript and budgetary issues. At the time, Spielberg didn't feel the project was ready to go.

Now, screenwriter Drew Goddard ("The Martian," "Marvel's Daredevil") has spoken with Creative Screenwriting about his time on the film and says the experience was a positive one and suggests one day the film could still happen:

"It's always positive. You know going in with screenwriting that it's a volatile business and you have to take the long view rather than the short view. There are so many times when projects don't go at a certain release date but find a better home later. It's all about timing. You never want a movie to get made when it's the wrong time, and these things have a way of working themselves out. »

It’s all part of the business.

In an interview with Creativescreenwriting.com, screenwriter Drew Goddard talked in detail about his projects being putting on hold with Sony’s “Sinister Six” and Steven Spielberg’s “Robopocalypse.”

He mentioned that it’s expected in the business and one has to always stay positive.

“You know going in with screenwriting that it’s a volatile business and you have to take the long view rather than the short view. There are so many times when projects don’t go at a certain release date but find a better home later. It’s all about timing. You never want a movie to get made when it’s the wrong time, and these things have a way of working themselves out,” he explained.
