You may remember in June last year we reviewed Robopocalypse, and we liked it! We gave it four out of five stars, and described it as
… an excellent, entertaining and emotional look at what might be if the Robots ever do rebel.
We knew at the time that Steven Spielberg had picked up the movie rights, and there’s news today on that project and when it might start going into production.
Via SFX magazine,
If current plans remain in place, then the next sci-fi film we’ll see from Steven Spielberg will be Robopocalypse, based on the novel by Daniel H Wilson, which should go into production after the director’s finished his next movie project, Lincoln (not the vampire-hunting one, the serious one).
That’s pretty exciting news, but movie projects have a way of coming together and falling apart so we’ll continue crossing our fingers. You can track updates about the movie on IMDb (normal caveats about accuracy).
