Will Smith in Talks for "Colossus" Sci-Fi Film, Directed by Ron Howard

Will Smith in Talks for "Colossus" Sci-Fi Film, Directed by Ron HowardSubmit Comment
We just reported that Jason Rothenberg has signed on to write a movie based on "The Twilight Zone" episodes. In the same article, Deadline mentions that he is also adapting "The Forbin Project" for Universal Pictures.

The project is a remake of the 1970 sci-fi film "Colossus: The Forbin Project," which has Ron Howard attached to direct and Will Smith attached to star.

Plot: Forbin is the designer of an incredibly sophisticated computer that will run all of America's nuclear defenses. Shortly after being turned on, it detects the existence of Guardian, the Soviet counterpart, previously unknown to US Planners. Both computers insist that they be linked, and after taking safeguards to preserve confidential material, each side agrees to allow it.

As soon as the link is established the two become a new Super computer and threaten the world with the immediate launch of nuclear weapons if they are detached. Colossus begins to give it's plans for the management of the world under it's guidance. Forbin and the other scientists form a technological resistance to Colossus which must operate underground.

@ Rambo i'll bet one of those demands is to not star in remakes...as for the article, first off i agree it sounds way too much like the terminator's story...and second, why would any human being put a computer in charge of nuclear weapons??...that's so far beyond retarded, words can't even describe such stupidity...you would think after films like terminator 1 and 2, they wouldn't be that stupid...if they don't want that fate, it needs to stay as humans in control of the computers...never put a super computer in charge...i don't give a sh*t if a virus is causing problems, it would cause worse problems if such people made that move

This sounds much more like the concept from the Matrix then The terminator. In my opinion.
