Yesterday Martin Levy, spokesman of Steven Spielberg, stated that the upcoming film ‘Robopocalypse‘ was put on hold by the famous director. Today Steven himself talked to the media mainly EW to set the record straight for those that believed the project was dead. The Lincoln director assures fans that the projec is still moving forward, but he has changed his concept for how to approach the novel adaptation.
“We found that the film was costing a lot of money,” Spielberg explains,“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.”
Spielberg added that the delay will take around six to eight months before the ‘new’ script is ready. Originally the film was scheduled for release on April 25, 2014. We now can say Robopocalypse will hit the big screen as soon as October 2014.
Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Ben Wishaw (Skyfall) were supposed to star in the science fiction film. Hopefully they’ll be back once it’s ready for production.
