“Robopocalypse”, the movie based on the book of the same name by Daniel Wilson, will be directed by Steven Spielberg, and Dreamworks has already scheduled it for a April 25, 2014 release. Now all the studio and director need to do is find a leading man. They may have found him in Chris Hemsworth.
After secret meetings with Hemsworth (yes, secret meetings, sheesh), Spielberg apparently came away so impressed with Hemsworth that an offer has since gone out to Hemsworth for the male lead in “Robopocalypse”. (And of course, I’m sure Hemsworth’s string of box office hits had nothing to do with it whatsoever. Ahem.)
“Robopocalypse” is set in the near-future, and chronicles the rise of the machines. Mankind, of course, has to fight back. Again.
When will we learn our lesson?
