Asimov's Caves of Steel Become Movie


It looks like 20th Century Fox now has the rights to Isaac Asimov's 1954 novel Caves of Steel. Henry Hobson has been chosen to direct the movie that is set 1,000 years from now when workers known as Spacers are sent to other planets to toil alongside robots. The humans become paranoid of the bots when one of the spacers is found murdered. A detective and robot disguised as a human are sent to investigate. No specific date has been set for production.
