Spielberg Discusses ‘Robopocalypse’ Cancellation

RobopocalypseAfter yesterday’s news that ROBOPOCALYPSE was going to be post-poned, we were all a little upset. It seems like a long time since Spielberg has done a really big sci-fi epic. I don’t count INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL. Even though it may contain aliens, I don’t even count it as a film. In a recent interview Steven Spielberg spoke up himself about whether we’ve heard the last about ROBOPOCALYPSE (it’s like the apocalypse, but withrobots).

We found that the film was costing a lot of money, 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.

That’s good news for the future, and hopefully this means we’ll get a much more emotionally charged film. When somebody as adept at moviemaking as Steven Spielberg needs a break, then you know it’s for good reason.

ROBOPOCALYPSE was originally set for 25th April 2014. With stars such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway, and Ben Whishaw considered for roles.
