Ronald Moore Takes On I, Robot 2

Ronald Moore is clearly a big wheel when it comes to television sci-fi, even though you’ve probably never heard of him. Unless, of course, you are big into sci-fi yourself, which I’m not. But he’s the executive producer and writer of “Battlestar Galactica” and previously worked on a couple of shows in the “Star Trek” universe. Moore was at a “Battlestar Galactica” event in Hollywood on June 7th and Collider was there with a reporter and a video camera.

One piece of interesting news for movie fans is that Moore said he is writing a sequel to I, Robot. The original was a Will Smith vehicle in 2004 which had a lukewarm critical reaction but a decent box office take. The decent box office take part is what is obviously driving this sequel. Or maybe they plan on making the movie something close to the Isaac Asimov book of the same name; the first didn’t have much to do with it.

Moore didn’t shed too much light on what the movie will be about or really any details. He said that everyone promised to have their third toe removed if they said anything about the plot. That isn’t true but he signed a confidentiality agreement and I wouldn’t be surprised if body parts were involved. He did say that he wrote it with a big budget in mind.
