Actor Alan Tudyk, last seen on FIREFLY
as the ship's pilot named Wash, has been cast as the mechanical man in I, ROBOT
. Tuduk's part is similar to what Andy Serkis faced when he portrayed Gollum in THE LORD OF THE RINGS
movies, namely, that his features and acting performance will be CGI-enhanced. The Hollywood Reporter
is describing Tudyk as being the "animation reference" for I, ROBOT
's principal android character, Sonny.
Will Smith has already been cast in the movie as the human detective investigating the apparent murder of another human by the android Sonny, a supposed impossibility given that every robot must follow three laws forbidding harm to come to any human. Alex Proyas (THE CROW
, DARK CITY
) is directing from a script by Jeff Vintar, Hillary Seitz and Akiva Goldsman. Filming is scheduled to begin this May in Vancouver for a summer 2004 release.
