Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are poised to develop a remake of the 1970 sci-fi feature "Colossus: The Forbin Project", simply naming it "Colossus."

Undoubtedly will evoke sci-fi fans' excitement, Universal Pictures is joining forces with Imagine Entertainment to set up a remake of sci-fi saga "Colossus: The Forbin Project", which Joseph Sargent directed for the studio back in 1970.

Simply titled "", the new version has already had Jason Rothenberg written its screenplay while is intended to be a potential directing vehicle for "" helmer Ron Howard. Names to star have not yet been revealed, but Brian Grazer reportedly is onboard to produce.

A forerunner of movies like "Terminator" franchise, the original was made based on the D.F. Jones' 1966 novel which centers on a massive defense computer that becomes sentient and decides to take control of the world. Rothenberg is said to use the original's premise as a springboard and will incorporate two subsequent "Colossus" novels written by Jones to hatch a much broader film premise.
