"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."
Steven Spielberg estimated that there will be a delay of anywhere between six and eight months while the script is being fine-tuned. DreamWorks and 20th Century Fox have already set an April 25, 2014 release date. Perhaps the delay will push this adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's novel into a late 2014 release, possibly over the holidays.
Robopocalypse is in development and stars Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway, Ben Whishaw. The film is directed by Steven Spielberg.
