Anne Hathaway is set to star opposite Chris Hemsworth in Steven Spielberg's sci-fi epic Robopocalypse.
It is not known what role The Dark Knight Rises star will play in the movie, an adaptation of Daniel H Wilson's cautionary tale of a world ruled by computers.
In the novel, an increasingly robot-reliant society faces extinction after a computer scientist accidentally unleashes a sentient artificial intelligence called Archos.
After infecting networked electronic devices (cars, airplanes, elevators, robots) with a "precursor virus", Archos begins planning a systematic attack on the human race.
The only things that can stop it are small bands of survivors who find ways to dodge the human purge and survive without modern technology.
The book has been adapted for the screen by Drew Godard and it will be produced by Tom Rothman, who recently resigned after 18 years at Fox, the last twelve as chairman and CEO.
The film will begin principal photography in early 2013 and will be released on April 25, 2014 day and date worldwide.
