According to on Dec. 20, Steven Spielberg's movie, "Robopocalypse", was suppose to have been the next science fiction blockbuster, however, it has been postponed indefinitely. The main celebrities involved would have been "Thor: The Dark World's" Chris Hemsworth and "The Dark Knight Rises'" Anne Hathaway.

The movie was based on the 2011 book by Daniel H. Wilson and storyboards for Spielberg's works is now available for viewing. They were drawn by Michael Anthony Jackson. The question remains as to why production was halted and Spielberg's spokesperson Marvin Levy said it was "too important and the script is not ready, and it’s too expensive to produce. It’s back to the drawing board to see what is possible".

Wilson was a contributing editor to the Popular Mechanics magazine and had gone by the nomenclature of "Resident Roboticis" and his most recent publication is called "Amped".

The unofficial synopsis entails an artificial intelligence in the form of a robot which had reoccurring hostilities towards humans. It is continuously being deleted, eventually escapes destruction, and ends up downloading itself into every A.I.-controlled technology. The result is a robot uprising and humans struggle to survive against the opposition.
