    "Alex Proyas, on the new All Access "I, Robot" DVD, stated that if there was a sequel, it would take place in outer space. In the books, he elaborated that in one line it was mentioned the robots were banned from Earth due to them taking the humans' jobs...not very plausible, but he stated that the events of the I, Robot movie were more of a reason to get the bots off Earth. In essence I ROBOT 2 would be "a big space movie, with interplanetary action." Akiva Goldsman elaborated that Sonny would become more human as Spooner loses his humanity, somewhere between the line of man and machine emotionally."

    Assuming I understand the position in the timeline this could be used as a setup for an adaption of the Empire trilogy. Personally I find those books much more satisfying than the robot short stories that are the (loose) basis for the I, Robot film..

    Personally, I can't see I Robot 2 being as big as the first if it's set in outer space. There are few and far between who would feel that truly carries on from where it left off.
