Fox Aboard Spielberg’s ‘Robopocalypse’, Get Ready For A ‘Terminator’ With Four Acts!

Man, it looks like Robopocalypse is gonna happen. Per Variety, “Twentieth Century Fox is coming on to co-finance Steven Spielberg’s robot uprising sci-fier ‘Robopocalypse’ with DreamWorks. Disney’s Touchstone Pictures will unspool the film domestically, while Fox will handle international distribution.

We’ve known that this is probably going to happen for a while, but the fact that two studios are now teaming up to split the massive cost makes it all the more real.

I actually really, really like Steven Spielberg. But I like him when he’s jazzed up. Granted, there’s no way this thing will be as bad as The Terminal, but I don’t think he’ll be inspired to reach the latter day heights of something like Munich either. The book is, by many accounts, not particularly good. Here’s hoping writer Drew Goddard can wring some gold out of Daniel Wilson’s text and we get something at least as good as the first 45 minutes of War Of The Worlds.

Robopocalypse is scheduled for release on July 13, 2013.
