Anne Hathaway - Spielberg Head-Hunting Anne Hathaway For New Film?

Reports suggest that Anne Hathaway will act alongside Chris Hemsworth in Steven Spielberg's new movie Robopocalypse, according to the NME.

The sci-fi action flick sees the human race desperate for survival against a hoard of robots of their own creation. The i-Robot-esque plot is based on an acclaimed sci-fi novel by Daniel H Wilson, and is Spielberg’s return to the genre after War of The Worlds. He of course helped define the genre with arguably his most famous picture, E.T. And it looks like Hathaway has turned the head of the legendary director with her recent, and excellent performance as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. She is in talks to feature in the robo-drama, though these discussions are said to be "at an early stage". Next up for Anne is the cinematic adaptation of Les Miserables, which will hit cinemas this December (2012) in the US and next January (2013) in the UK.

The Australian actor Chris Hemworth, who is currently filming Thor 2, is also said to be in negotiations for the role, but again, nothing is confirmed. Robopocalypse is set for a 2014 release. Spielberg's latest movie, Lincoln, will be out shortly. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President of the United States, and will released on November 9th. U.K audiences will have to wait until 2013 for the presidential biopic.
