Steven Spielberg Will Next Direct Robopocalypse

Steven Spielberg has always been a little bit of a workaholic, but now he's topping even himself. The director already has two upcoming movies in the can -- The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn and War Horse, both of which are coming out within a week of each other next December -- and he's just committed to make his next movie: Robopocalypse, a Drew Goddard-scripted take on Edward H. Wilson's upcoming robot uprising novel. Shooting will begin in January 2012, so at least Spielberg will have a little time to attend to his two other movies in the meantime, but somebody really needs to get this guy addicted to Angry Birds so he can sit down and rest for a while.
