Oh God, let that be true for the headline alone!

Drew Goddard, Buffy/Lost vet and co-writer/director of next year’s Cabin In The Woods, has been hired to adapt Daniel H. Wilson’s epic about the human race’s attempt to survive an apocalyptic robot uprising. Wilson hasn’t actually finished writing the novel, but that hasn’t stopped Goddard from starting work on the script. Spielberg is currently hovering around various other projects, but Robopocalypse is being looked at as a “serious candidate.”

Goddard’s a great writer, having already destroyed a city once with Cloverfield. His dialogue is witty without being too witty, and his style would separate this project from the pack. I also, personally, think it would just be awesome to see Spielberg direct a script by Drew Goddard.
