Steven Spielberg fears the Robopocalypse!

Steven Spielberg fears the Robopocalypse!

How’s your day Movieholers? I’m so excited… got to meet Denzel Washington, Tony Scott and Chris Pine today! And Pine remembered me!

But I hide my gush….

Before he gets crackin’ on the next “Indiana Jones” (said to be happening sometime in the next couple of years; take as long as you want sir, just make it good!), Steven Spielberg will helm an adaptation of ”Robopocalypse” for DreamWorks and Disney, the studio announced today.

The film, written by “Cloverfield” writer Daniel Goddard, is based on a post-apocalyptic paperback by Daniel H.Wilson.

DreamWorks acquired the rights to Wilson’s unpublished manuscript back in November 2009. Publishing rights were acquired by Doubleday and they plan to release the book in June 2011.

“‘Robopocalypse’ embodies an imaginative story of a robot rebellion unleashed against the human race,” said Dreamworks’ co-prez of production Mark Sourian. “This is a project we immediately sparked to and with Steven directing it we knew it was in the best possible hands to bring it to worldwide audiences.”

The film won’t begin production until January 2012 and is due out the year after.

She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.
