Spielberg clarifies Robopocalypse status

Says the film isn’t dead

Yesterday we reported that Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse had been delayed indefinitely, with word filtering out that the production had become too expensive to be practical.

However, Spielberg himself has clarified the situation, and it sounds as though we will actually be seeing the film after all, albeit a little further down the track.

““We found that the film was costing a lot of money,” says Spielberg, “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.”

So there you have it, robot fans. The Beard isn’t giving up on his cybernetic chums, and neither should you…

      Actually, I would much prefer to see the original balls-to-the-wall version! Spielberg films are overly personal these days and would just like to see a straight up summer blockbuster like he pioneered.

      I like the fact Steve is taking his time and making sure the script is right before jumping into shooting it. I hope Catwoman and Thor stay attached.
