STEVEN SPIELBERG TO DIRECT ‘ROBOPOCALYPSE’

Though A.I.: Artificial Intelligence was quite a bore, Steven Spielberg is taking on a story about soulless ones once again.

DreamWorks Studios announced today (October 22) that the famous director will begin shooting the film version of Daniel H. Wilson‘s novel Robopocalypse in January 2012 with plans to debut in theaters sometime in 2013.

This tale of mechanical Armageddon will be his next directing project, after finishing the World War I drama War Horse.

Spielberg acquired the rights to the book in 2009, before it was published, though it was unclear whether he would director or just produce.

The novel has still not been released to the public. Doubleday plans to put it on shelves in June 2011.

Little is known about the story, apart from its focus on a band of humans trying to survive after sentient machines take over the world.
