Anne Hathaway (Catwoman) is undergoing several talks with DreamWorks for the lead female role in Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi film project Robopocalypse. It has also been rumored that Chris Hemsworth (Thor) was also looking to join the film. However there is nothing official for either of the actors.
Robopocalypse, is a novel written by Daniel H. Wilson, the screenplay was written by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, Cloverfield).
In a previous interview Spielberg stated, “It’s a movie about a global war between man and machine. I had a great time creating the future on ‘Minority Report,’ and it’s a future that is coming true faster than any of us thought it would. ‘Robopocalypse’ takes place in 15 or 20 years, so it’ll be another future we can relate to. It’s about the consequences of creating technologies, which make our lives easier, and what happens when that technology becomes smarter than we are. It’s not the newest theme, it’s been done throughout science fiction, but it’s a theme that becomes more relevant every year.”
Tom Rothman, a former FOX executive will also be part of the movie production.
