Los Angeles: Filmmaker Steven Spielberg has pulled the plug on his planned big screen adaptation of `Robopocalypse`.
The sci-fi action film from DreamWorks would have been distributed by Fox and Disney, with Anne Hathaway and Chris Hemsworth in talks to star, said the Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the 2011 book by Daniel H Wilson, Robopocalypse would have reunited Fox and Spielberg, who worked together on 2002`s `Minority Report`.
Spielberg`s spokesman Marvin Levy said the project was "too important and the script is not ready, and it`s too expensive to produce. It`s back to the drawing board to see what is possible."
It is unclear what project will be next for Spielberg, whose Lincoln has earned more than USD 145 million at the worldwide box office and is an Oscar front-runner.
