Roland Emmerich’s latest big-budget sci-fi feature “Singularity” has been put on hold at Sony Pictures reports The Wrap.
The $175 million film was scheduled to begin production in March but will now be pushed back in the wake of script revisions that will need to be done.
The story follows a nanotechnology pioneer who transfers his injured son’s consciousness into nanobots that take his physical form.
Emmerich and Harald Kloser penned the screenplay while Larry J. Franco and Koser are producing. No actors have been attached as yet.
Futurist Ray Kurzweil, one of the world’s leading experts in the field the film explores, has been enlisted to help. His book “The Singularity is Near” speculates that the line between humans, machines, reality and virtual reality will grow increasingly blurred in the future.
