Carolco Pictures are back with a new movie project: Bot

March 18th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Mario Kassar, the Carolco producer responsible for Terminator 2 and Total Recall, is once again heading into the territory of sci-fi and AI.

Carolco was pretty much extinct for the last 20 years or so, but now Kassar and new CEOAlex Bafer are bringing it back with a new, as they put it “Terminator-type sci-fi summer blockbuster” called Bot.

Kassar said: “BOT’s the kind of movie I used to produce in the old days of Carolco. A big, action kind of [film]. It’s a little bit futuristic, but not set too much into the future – I don’t want huge flying space craft , or whatever. It’s set, maybe, 10 or 20 years or so from now. It has nano-technology in it, and good guys and bad guys. It’s a very humane, interesting story.”

The plot revolves around 100 identical children who are born with incredible intellects and who eventually take over earth which leads to the enslavement of the human race by nano robots.

The concept art above is by Josh Nizzi, the artist behind The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the Transformers films.

A sci-fi blockbuster that’s not a reboot, adaptation or sequel? Well, that’s certainly different…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
