Stephen Spielberg’s upcoming film Robopocalypse, scripted by Drew Goddard (The Cabin In The Woods), hits theaters April 25, 2014, almost a year later than originally planned. Based on the novel of the same name by Daniel H. Wilson, the plot explores the fate of the human race following a robot uprising. And now they’re casting up! According to reports, Chris Hemsworth (pictured above; Thor, The Cabin In The Woods, Snow White And The Huntsman) has been chosen as the film’s lead.
Per Deadline, “Spielberg met and now wants Hemsworth in his next helming effort Robopocalypse, the big technothriller which is sure to become the director’s next big global popcorn film.”
