Computers Take Command For "Colossus"

Universal and Imagine Entertainment will remake the 1970 feature "Colossus: The Forbin Project" for director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer.

Jason Rothenberg will write the screenplay under the title "Colossus".

Based on the book by author D.F. Jones, the original film introduced the idea of a government-built computer designed as a means of protection. The computer however decides that the most effective way it can act as protector is to assume complete control.
