Hemsworth Lands Lead In Spielberg’s ROBOPOCALYPSE

Chris Hemsworth has landed the lead in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Robopocalypse.

Adapted from the novel by Daniel H Wilson, the story centers on mankind creating an artifical intelligence which immediately decides to exterminate mankind.

I have to admit to some surprise that this is going to be a Spielberg film as the story sounds like it is treading in territory already done to death in movies as far ranging as The Forbin Project and the Terminator series.

It is not apparent when Hemsworth will report to work for this, but since the film has a release date of April 2014, I would imagine that it would be sometime relatively earlier in the new year after he finishes Thor: The Dark World which should be under way any day now.
