Anne Hathaway

Not only is the newly semi-untethered Tim Rothman going to produce Steven Spielberg‘s forthcoming Robopocalypse, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Anne Hathaway is in talks to play the lead role. She’d join Chris Hemsworth who has been in talks to star as well.

The film is based on the book by Daniel H. Wilson in which a sentient computer named Archos launches small test attacks against humanity to check for weaknesses before descending into an all-out assault, pitting a small group of survivors and a “freeborn” robot to fight back. It seems likely that Hemsworth and Hathaway will play important figures in the revolt.

There’s reasonable excitement with all these names involved (and the straight-ahead genre possibilities), but it’s really fantastic to have Drew Goddard (Cain in the Woods) writing the script. With all the pieces in place, the production is looking to release April 2014.
