Goddard: Spielberg is the best

Steven Spielberg

Robopocalypse writer Drew Goddard has admitted he "couldn't be more excited" about working with Steven Spielberg.

Drew has penned the screenplay for the sci-fi action movie, and reckons he has cracked the secret to the legendary director's success.

"With Steven, there's a reason he's the greatest director in the world, it's because he's able to be involved in all of these things, all the time. So nothing happens without his say or blessing," Drew told The Hollywood Reporter.

Details of the movie - set in the future and based on a novel by Daniel H Wilson - are being kept firmly under wraps, with Cabin In The Woods director Drew reluctant to give too much away.

He explained: "I can't speak too much because Mr Spielberg likes to keep things pretty secret, as he should... it's a wonderful hard science look at what happens if our technology turns on us in the future, and it's the sort of epic science fiction that nobody does better than Steven Spielberg. So I couldn't be more excited about it."

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
