There’s still a little spark in those killer robots after all.
Yesterday came the announcement that Steven Spielberg’s sinister sci-fi saga Robopocalypse, which he had planned to shoot this summer for a debut in April 2014, had been put on hold, with no details on when — or if — it might come back on the calendar.
That seemed to be a clear indication that the film, based on Daniel H. Wilson’s 2011 novel about a machine uprising, was headed for oblivion.
But now, the Lincoln filmmaker — who is celebrating a leading 12 Oscar nominations this morning for that movie — tells EW that Robopocalypse‘s demise has been greatly exaggerated.
Take heart, sci-fi fans: our mechanized extermination is still nigh.
