Chris Hemsworth may wish he had a magic hammer to defeat the enemies in this next film! Steven Spielberg wants the star of Thor and Marvel’s Avengers to play the lead in Robopocalypse according to Deadline.
The script by Drew Goddard is based on the book by Daniel H. Wilson is about humanity’s struggle to survive an apocalyptic uprising by robots and anything with a computer (even the cars turn against us!)
Hemsworth would play Cormac Wallace, the narrator of the story and leader of a battalion of human survivors fighting against Archos, the orchestrator of the robot uprising.
Opinion: I’m reading this book now and it’s like World War Z but with robots. I LOVE this book and think Hemsworth would be perfect as “Bright Boy.” Here’s an Amazon link for the book.
