Another adaptation of the Isaac Asimov short-story I, Robot. The story of a detective investigating the murder of a scientist in a compound. As the detective begins to search the compound he learns that some of the 'scientists' are actually complex computers with deceptive hologram capabilities. Jeff Vintar wrote the spec script 'Hardwired' that Touchstone initially purchased. Alex Proyas (The Crow) will direct the film
'I, Robot' has been made many. many times. It's just that they were all uncredited rips or, at least, inspired bys.
INTERESTING FACTS
1. Respected fellow sci-fi author Harlan Ellison completed his screenplay adaptation of Isaac Asimov's collected robot series, I, Robot, in 1978. Almost a decade later, with the screenplay still unfilmed, Ellison and Asimov agreed to serialize it in the pages of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. It ran in three issues in late 1987. Asimov wrote a foreword that accompanied the first part of the serialization. I have no idea how much influence this has over Vintar's screenplay
