McBride takes on Robot


By all accounts, Chi McBride (NARC) has signed on to play Will Smith’s boss in Alex Proyas’ (DARK CITY) upcoming I, ROBOT. Based on the collection of stories by Isaac Asimov, ROBOT follows Det. Spooner (Smith) as he unravels the mystery surrounding a murder that has purportedly been committed by a robot. The issue that lies at hand is that robots of the time are governed by the “Three Laws of Robotics”, which are: 1. A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Along with Smith and McBride, ROBOT also stars the ever so lovely Bridget Moynahan (THE SUM OF ALL FEARS) as Dr. Susan Calvin and Alan Tudyk (HEARTS IN ATLANTIS) as Sonny, the robot suspected of the murder. The final working script was penned by Akiva Goldsman, the Oscar winning writer of A BEAUTIFUL MIND, and was adapted from the original screenplay HARDWIRED by Jeff Vintar.

I, ROBOT is scheduled to begin filming in Vancouver next month.
