I, Robot Sequel Script Already Written
I'm sure I'm not alone here, but I thoroughly enjoyed I, Robot with Will Smith from 2004. It wasn't perfect, but it was a fun flick that now has a permanent spot in my DVD collection. As with any big-budget film in Hollywood these days, a sequel typically will be greenlit by studio execs after it performs well at the box office and is deemed a success. As with I, Robot, I would've never seen a sequel coming, largely because the story ends fairly well and it's based on a novel by Isaac Asimov that isn't part of a series. However Fox thinks otherwise (and we all know how that's turned out recently).
Collider.com talked with "Battlestar Galactica" producer Ronald D. Moore recently and discovered that he is writing a sequel to I, Robot that will hopefully go into production with a full feature budget.
Although Moore wouldn't speak at all to Collider about the story or any details, he did hint that it would be a bigger budget film and not just a direct-to-DVD sequel. Per a bit of information from SlashFilm, the director of the first I, Robot, Alex Proyas, said on the DVD that if there was a sequel, it would take place in outer space. He said it would be "a big space movie, with interplanetary action." That description doesn't sound very feasible as a sequel to an Isaac Asimov story, but it could just be the desire of Proyas and not what Moore has cooked up in his script.
We'll keep you updated on all the latest developments with the I, Robot sequel as they happen.
