Drew Goddard (the film’s director and co-writer) is promoting Cabin in the Woods and spoke briefly about his screenplay for Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse. For those who need a refresher on the latter, it’s based on the book by Daniel H. Wilson which explores the fate of the human race following a robot uprising.
This is from Blood Disgusting:
You’ve got Robopocalypse coming up. How far along is that?
It’s in its process. It’s such a unique process with Steven because he has such resources and he’s able to visualize. He’s such a visual person. He’s doing tremendous work and the stuff his team has come up with is tremendous. I’m excited for people to see that finally.
Are you anywhere close to a shooting draft?
I think so. I’ve learned as a screenwriter that you never really know until it’s actually shooting. But I think the plan, last I heard, was to start in September. So up until then I’ll be tinkering.
