Steven Spielberg has been actively involved in the sci-fi genre for years so it’s no surprise to learn that he may be considering stepping behind the cameras for another invasion flick. This time, though, it’s not aliens that are hell bent on obliterating mankind, but killer robots.
Deadline NY raises the question whether Spielberg will direct the unfortunately titled Robopocalypse for Dreamworks or simply produce the project.
The latest title gaining steam among speculators is Robopocalypse, now that Cloverfield screenwriter Drew Goddard has been hired to adapt the Daniel H. Wilson epic about the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising [“How To Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion”]. Wilson hasn’t finished the book yet, but word is Goddard has gotten under way and that it’s a serious candidate.
Spielberg isn’t quite what he used to be, but I think this could be a great project for him to prove he’s got another great film in him. As long as they change that damn title.
