Spielberg has more projects in the works

Director Steven Spileberg has had his name bandied about quite a bit this past week with the news of his Lincoln movie project finally seeing the light of day and coming to fruition, but... he also has another project he will be diving into just as soon as he finishes Lincoln, and that's a sci-fi thriller called Robopocalypse, based off the novel of the same name by writer/robotics expert Daniel H. Wilson. The film will see an 2013 release.

" These damned machines knew us and loved us, even while they were tearing our civilization to shreds.”

Here's a synopsis about the premise...

Roughly twenty years from now, our technological marvels unite and turn against us. A childlike but massively power­ful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online . . . and kills the man who created it. This first act of betrayal leads Archos to gain control over the global network of machines and technology that regulates everything from transportation to utilities, defense, and communications. In the early months, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans—from a senator and single mother disconcerted by her daughter’s “smart” toys, to a lonely Japanese bachelor, to an isolated U.S. soldier—but most are unaware of the growing rebellion until it is far too late. Then, in the span of minutes, at a moment known later in history as Zero Hour, every mechanical device in our world rebels, setting off the Robot War that both decimates and—for the first time in history—unites humankind.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
