This may be the first real indication that Robocalypse will actually get made. Rumor has it Steven Spielberg already has an actor in mind for the lead: Chris Hemsworth.

Deadline is reporting that the famous director is actively pursuing Thor himself to star in his adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's book (a movie so big that Dreamworks had to get extra funding from Fox studios). The film, which takes during a bloody apocalyptic robot uprising (hence the title) is tentatively scheduled to be released on April 25, 2014.
