3 Laws Safe
For all my Asimov-fan readers, it's worth noting that the website for the new I, Robot movie is now up. Will Smith and Bridget Moynahan as lead actors give me a bit of pause--she's just too pretty for the perpetually unattractive Susan Calvin--but it's directed by Alex Proyas.
I can't wait. Indeed, I almost want to go back and re-read the novel. For those who don't know, the collection of stories deal with robots programmed to follow three simple and yet absolute laws, and the problems that arise in their interpretation. The "3 Laws Safe" slogan on the movie website is delightfully ironic. Asimov's three laws of robotics were in the main sensible, but never truly secure.
