Much like the original film, the Colossus remake will center on a supercomputer that has taken over the world. Smith is set to play the AI's creator, Dr. Charles Forbin, who is the only hope to end Colossus' reign. The remake script was original penned by Blake Masters and Jason Rothenberg, but now The Hollywood Reporter states that Solomon will be taking over.
It's not clear what the problem was with the initial script, but let's hope that Solomon can bring the genre savvy and charm he's brought to other screenplays. And perhaps the combo of Solomon and Smith will manage to produce another winner.
