Steven Spielberg Puts 'Robopocalypse' On Hold

By Sydney Bucksbaum, Hollywood.com Staff

Steven Spielberg has decided to push back Robopocalypse, his big sci-fi film about - duh - a robotic apocalypse, Deadline reports. He was previously scheduled to direct the movie this spring for Fox and Disney through Dreamworks but he wanted more time, and didn't want to rush such a large-scale and expensive film.

Based on the novel of the same name by Daniel H. Wilson and with a script penned by Drew Goddard, Robopocalypse is about the battle for survival after humans generate the first mass intelligence computer brain and it turns on them. The film was set to star Chris Hemsworth and Anne Hathaway.

No word yet on when Robopocalypse might see a new release date, or if the leads will stay with Hemsworth and Hathaway. But if Spielberg doesn't want to rush it, then we say all the better. We'd rather wait longer for a great film than settle for a mediocre one released faster.
