Wilson's book will be released by Doubleday in June 2011.
In a press release announcing Spielberg as director, DreamWorks Studios President of Production Mark Sourian said, "Robopocalypse embodies an imaginative story of a robot rebellion unleashed against the human race. This is a project we immediately sparked to and with Steven directing it we knew it was in the best possible hands to bring it to worldwide audiences."
Spielberg is currently in post-production on The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn starring Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell and produced by Peter Jackson. He's also busy with the adventure film War Horse based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo. Both films will be competing for the attention of moviegoers in late December 2011.
