Steven Spielberg Talks About His Adaptation of ROBOPOCALYPSE

Just over a year ago, we brought you the news that director Steven Spielberg had signed on to direct the big-screen adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson‘s novel Robopocalypse, based on a screenplay penned by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield, Lost).

In a recent interview with TimeOutLondon, Spielberg spoke a bit about the big-screen adaptation and some similarities to his 2002 film Minority Report.

Spielberg said,

“It’s a movie about a global war between man and machine. I had a great time creating the future on Minority Report, and it’s a future that is coming true faster than any of us thought it would. Robopocalypse takes place in 15 or 20 years, so it’ll be another future we can relate to. It’s about the consequences of creating technologies which make our lives easier, and what happens when that technology becomes smarter than we are. It’s not the newest theme, it’s been done throughout science fiction, but it’s a theme that becomes more relevant every year.”

Robopocalypse directed by Steven Spielberg is slated to hit theaters on July 3rd, 2013.
