Steven Spielberg Robopocalypse Goes ‘Back to the Drawing Board’

Steven Spielberg has indefinitely postponed Robopocalypse, his planned adaptation of the 2011 novel by Daniel H. Wilson. A spokesperson tells The Hollywood Reporter the project is “too important and the script is not ready, and it’s too expensive to produce. It’s back to the drawing board to see what is possible.”

The DreamWorks production, which featured a script by Drew Goddard, with Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw in talks to star.

After a recent 60 Minutes interview on which Spielberg said he could do an action movie “in my sleep at this point in my career,” and then added, “it doesn’t attract me anymore,” many believe that the director might have lost interest in the project. Now that Lincoln is up for 12 Academy Awards, perhaps his next project will be more along those lines.
