Ed Solomon Comes On To Rewrite “Colossus”

“Men in Black” scribe Ed Solomon has been hired to pen a rewrite of “Colossus” at Universal Pictures. Will Smith is attached to star.

The story is a remake of the 1970’s “Colossus: The Forbin Project”, based on a book by D.F. Jones, and is something of a precursor to “The Terminator.”

The story deals with a supercomputer being built for the government as a means of protection. The computer becomes sentient and decides that the most effective way it can act as protector is to assume complete control.

Blake Masters and Jason Rothenberg penned the earlier drafts which would use the previous film along with elements of the two subsequent “Colossus” novels.
