Steven Spielberg mulling robot movie

HollywoodNews.com: Steven Spielberg is considering “Robopocalypse” as his next directorial feature in the wake of two other projects stalling.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Daniel H. Wilson, a robotics researcher who also penned the tome “How to Survive a Robot Uprising.”

Vulture had the news, observing that even if Spielberg passes on the project, agents are waiting to attach their director clients to the film. Whenever Spielberg touches a script in Hollywood, it is observed as gold. Recently, there hasn’t been that much production movement on the director’s long-awaited Abraham Lincoln biopic and the adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 novel “War Horse.” Hence “Robopocalypse” may come to life.

DreamWorks optioned “Robopocalypse” and has Drew Goddard (co-scribe on “Cloverfield”) writing a draft.

DreamWorks has two other robot films due out in 2011: “Transformers 3” and Shawn Levy’s action movie Reel Steel, set in the futuristic world of robot boxing.
