On the heels of the recently announced delay of Robopocalypse, director Steven Spielberg has revealed that he’s found a better way to tell the story. Hopefully it doesn’t involve apple pie and a idiotic family reunion.
The iconic director, who has lately been focusing on the lighter fare, tells EW, “We found that the film was costing a lot of money and I found a better way to tell the story more economically but also much more personally. I found the personal way into “Robopocalypse,” and so I just told everybody to go find other jobs, I’m starting on a new script and we’ll have this movie back on its feet soon.”
Daniel H. Wilson wrote the novel that Drew Goddard had adapted for the big screen. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of major changes caused the delay when the film eventually make a 2015 release (an, that’s so freakin’ far away). In any sense, it’s impossible to question the arguably best director of our time.
The film was all set to begin production this spring with Chris Hemsworth and Anne Hathaway set to star.
