Anne Hathaway has taken on romance, comedy, cartoon, action, and mystery, and now the actress is rumored to be in talks for the female lead role in Steven Spielberg's new science-fiction film "Robopocalypse."
The Indian Express reported the news and though details have been scarcely revealed, if Hathaway does join the case, she will play alongside "Thor" actor Chris Hemworth, who has been attached to the male lead role since joining the project in July.

Tom Rothman will produce the book-adapted movie.
"Tom has been a wonderful friend and colleague over the years and DreamWorks is incredibly lucky to have him on board," Spielberg said.
"If you are in politics, you dream of a call from the White House, in baseball, from the Yankees, in movies, from Steven Spielberg," Rothman said, according to Deadline.com. " 'Robopocalypse' is the kind of important epic entertainment, a big movie with big ideas, that Steven does better than any filmmaker on earth."
The two visionaries worked together on "Minority Report."
Rothman recently announced his departure from Fox after 18 years with the studio; he will resign as chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment on Jan. 1.
The book "Robopocalypse" was written by Daniel H. Wilson in 2011. The New York Times best-seller focuses on an artificial intelligence that goes online and takes control of a network of machines used by the human race, ultimately starting a rebellion which humans must then try to survive. The plot takes place in the future, "where modern society is on the brink of extermination thanks to sentient robots," according to The Huffington Post.
With many of his films, Spielberg is not one to disappoint. Movie-lovers know the director's name attached to big blockbuster and iconic films such as "Titanic," "Jaws," "Jurassic Park," "Avatar," "Schindler's List" and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," though the list can go on.
The film is a co-production of DreamWorks and Twentieth Century Fox. "Robopocalypse" will be in theatres on April 25, 2014, according to Deadline.com.
