Steven Spielberg provides an update on Robopocalypse
As reports suggest that Robopocalypse might be permanently delayed, Steven Spielberg sets the record straight...
Yesterday, we shared the disappointing report that Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse had been put on hold - with the rumoured possibility that its stasis may be permanent.
In the wake of those rumours, Steven Spielberg's offered a brief update on the project, and offers the reassurance that, although it is indeed delayed, Robopocalypse still very much alive.
“We found that the film was costing a lot of money," Spielberg told Entertainment Weekly, "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.”
All of this means that, far from being dead, Robopocalpyse is merely going to be delayed from the spring of 2014 until the autumn; all being well, we could see the sci-fi movie (about artificially intelligent robots turning against humans) in October of that year.
We've already heard that Anne Hathaway and Chris Hemsworth may be linked to the film - no doubt that'll be confirmed in the coming months.
