Simon Kinberg (franchise “X-Men”, “the Martian”), who in the same year attached to the project Director
Henry Hobson (“Infected”). Over the past five years, the leadership of the Studio have received two versions of the script from

James Vanderbilt (“zodiac”, “independence Day: the Revival”), but it is not going to stop and ordered Goldsman new dramas.
“Caves of steel” by Isaac Asimov was published in 1953, ushering in a quadrilogy about the detectives-partners — human and robot — Elijah Bailey and R. Daniel Olivo. The cycle continued, the Naked sun, 1957, “Robots Zara” (1983) and “Robots and Empire” (1985). In fact, at stake is a new Hollywood sci-Fi franchise.
