Shawn Levy is directing the futuristic robot tale, based on a short story by Richard Matheson. Lensing begins in June.

Angry Films’ Don Murphy and Susan Montford are producing, along with Levy. Exec producers are Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke, Steve Starkey, Josh McLaglen and Mary McLaglen.
