Some quick quotes from the bearded genius on a few projects that we’re tracking. Maybe I shouldn’t use the word genius after shitting on the legacy of Indiana Jones with that CRYSTAL SKULL shit… Anyway. Here’s the verbiage COLLIDER was able to grab from Stevie Spieg. (that’s better).
On his William Castle-ish idea for ROBOPOCALYPSE:
“I just finished shooting a movie about Abraham Lincoln staring Daniel Day-Lewis which I am so deeply proud of. But because I am right in the middle of the editing of Lincoln, I’m not really going to speak and talk very much about that until the time is right to talk about it. And I’m making a science fiction movie probably in September called Robopocalypse based on Daniel Wilson’s book. It’s a cautionary tale about war between human beings and robots. It’s a big crowd pleaser, I think, a big action popcorn movie with a message. The message is actually in the popcorn! You have to get the popcorn, dig down deep in the bottom and they’ll be a message about what Robopocalypse is really about! And I have a couple of other plans which I don’t want to go into because they’re too far out of the horizon. But there’s a lot of work ahead, a lot of television my company is producing for some of the networks and some of the cable outlets. So I’m busy!”
and on JP4:
“I don’t want to talk about Jurassic Park 4 yet – it’s too early – but I can tell you that I’m not directing it. I’m producing it though.”
Run that through the DG-atron and you register interest in ROBOPOCALYPSE and zero fucking interest in JP4. Try again S. Spiggets (…doesn’t work).
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
