Spielberg's Robopocalypse Postponed Indefinitely: But With Hope!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAnne HathawaySteven SpielbergChris Hemsworth


Some sad news was going around that Spielberg's epic Robopocalypse adaptation was postponed indefinitely, which is usually the kiss of death in the industry.

Here's the bad news: it HAS been postponed. Here's the good news: Mr. Spielberg says he postponed it himself to start the script from scratch, to make it more manageable, and wanted the cast and crew he had assembled to go find other work until he was done.

See? Not so bad!

Here's what he said:

“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. 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.”

We were worried there for a second! We can relax now!

Also, if you're wondering why a movie called Robopocalypse was getting out of hand, here's a synopsis:

Not far into our future, the dazzling technology that runs our world turns against us. Controlled by a childlike—yet massively powerful—artificial intelligence known as Archos, the global network of machines on which our world has grown dependent suddenly becomes an implacable, deadly foe. At Zero Hour—the moment the robots attack—the human race is almost annihilated, but as its scattered remnants regroup, humanity for the first time unites in a determined effort to fight back. This is the oral history of that conflict, told by an international cast of survivors who experienced this long and bloody confrontation with the machines.

Sounds awwwwwwwwwesome to us — and really easy to burn through budget while making!! LOLz!

Oh, and did we mention Anne Hathaway, Chris Hemsworth and Ben Wishaw were rumored to be starring? They were — and we can only hope they'll be back!

We hope we didn't worry you too much about the project's fate!!

    what an original premise!

    humans dependent on technology which becomes self-aware, launches a co-ordinated strike at a pre-determined hour and tries to kill off the human race, a band of survivors fight back - I can't think of a thing from the 80's that sounds even remotely like this.

    I guess it's like Roger Myers Jr. said about Itchy & Scratchy " if you take away peoples right to steal ideas, where are they supposed to come from"?

    HOW DARE YOU!!! The real life movie footage was likely taken by one of the Hitlers!! Yfou called my GREAT uncle whose name in Germany was Wiliam Canaris, !!Schlindler!! and then showed real life NAZI footage for your own profit. What you dream tonight is only what you can imagine while you are still able to scream in my world. What GOD has planned for you in the vast eternity and always more beyond is far, far worse. Your sins will never, ever be forgiven. Come at ME with the initials SS!!! You are a sick bastard. AMH
