Daniel H. Wilson's "Robogenesis"

Daniel H. Wilson is the author of the New York Times bestselling Robopocalypse and seven other books, including How to Survive a Robot Uprising, A Boy and His Bot, and Amped. In 2008, he hosted The Works on the History Channel. He earned a PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, as well as Masters degrees in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.

Here Wilson dreamcasts an adaptation of his new novel, Robogenesis:
Robogenesis is a sequel to the bestselling Robopocalypse, which was purchased by DreamWorks and put into movie development hell with Steven Spielberg attached to direct. That was years ago, but I’m still hoping very hard that the movie moves forward. Chris Hemsworth was attached as Cormac Wallace, which sounds good to me (although in my mind, Cormac is not quite as Thor-like in his buffness). My most ardent hope, however, is that the dozens of Native American characters in Robogenesis (including Lark Iron Cloud, Hank Cotton, and Cherrah Ridge) will someday be played by native actors.
