Now that he’s Mr. Big Shot Oscar Nominee Guy, Steven Spielberg isn’t as enthused as he once was to make a movie about killer robots. Thus Robopocalypse will not be his directorial follow-up to Lincoln.

The indefinite postponement is attributed to the script by Drew Goddard. A spokesman for Spielberg says the film is “too important” and the script is “just not ready.” The spokesman also adds that the current version is just too expensive to shoot causing them to rethink what is achievable.

Too expensive for Spielberg? That sounds awesome!! If you’re going to make a movie about killer robots enslaving humanity with Chris Hemsworth attached to star, it sure as fudge had better be too expensive. That’s the kind of stuff audiences like to see. Do this one and take the hit. He owes us after those Transformers movies. (THR)

Jack Black Will Show Us ‘How To Stop A Robot Uprising’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jack-black-will-show-us-how-to-stop-a-robot-uprising/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jack-black-will-show-us-how-to-stop-a-robot-uprising/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "You wanna step to this, ese? Do ya? DO YA?!?" You all laughed when I warned you on the inevitable robot uprising. And then that other time when I got pantsed in church. At least now, Hollywood is listening. Just the other day it was announced that Steven Spielberg would choose the adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse as his next directorial effort, and this weekend comes news that Jack Black will adapt another of Wilson's books about robots overthrowing mankind (seriously, one wasn't enough?). Black, along with Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink, are looking to develop How To Survive A Robot Uprising. The eventual film will star Black as a layabout in a future society where robots are our slaves. When they revolt, it's up to Jack Black to save us all. It's like "Battlestar Galactica" with more farting. (io9)

Steven Spielberg Will Next Direct ‘Robopocalypse’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steven-spielberg-will-next-direct-robopocalypse/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steven-spielberg-will-next-direct-robopocalypse/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Steven Spielberg has made a firm commitment to Robopocalypse as his next directorial effort. He initially chose War HorseĀ over the robot uprising tale, but he's Steven Spielberg and he can come back to sh*t later if he wants to, ya heard? He'll start shooting the Drew Goddard-scripted adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's novel in January 2012 for a 2013 release. The novel won't even be published until June 2011. Spielberg has been collecting pages as Wilson churns them out, immediately having them adapted into script form and storyboarded. Makes you wonder if the book is even necessary. Who needs to read stupid words when Spielberg will just flood our senses with CG robot battles a year later? That's the Michael Bay stance on literacy. (Deadline)

Spielberg Considering ‘Robopocalypse’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/spielberg-considering-robopocalypse/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/spielberg-considering-robopocalypse/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 When I began preparing for the coming Robopocalypse, my now ex-girlfriend said I was crazy. But word has it that iconic director and propagandist for the New World Order, Steven Spielberg, may be prepping for the Robopocalypse as well. Who's the "deranged moron with a small penis" now, eh Cindy? Spielberg, who initially passed on the film in favor of his current film, War Horse, is reportedly considering Robopocalypse as his next project. The story by Daniel H. Wilson chronicles man's fight for survival as robots turn on their former masters and humanity's chickens come home to roost. If I were you, I'd unplug my Roomba right now and throw it off a bridge.

Steven Spielberg Targeting ‘Robopocalypse’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steven-spielberg-targeting-robopocalypse/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steven-spielberg-targeting-robopocalypse/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This isn't a done deal yet but there's a lot of speculation that Steven Spielberg will choose Robopocalypse for his next directing gig. Based on an unpublished manuscript, Robopocalypse tells the story of humankind's struggle after the robot uprising. Cloverfield's Drew Goddard is on scripting duties. I'm picturing a mix of War of the Worlds and Schindler's List.Like I said, this is all industry insiders speculating so it could just as easily go away. What I do know is that you can't trust a machine. They could be anyone at anytime.(Deadline)
