58 I, Robot

Back in the 80s Hollywood was trying really hard to adapt Isaac Asimov's book, I, Robot, but it was impossible to make at that time so they decided to do an illustrated screenplay of the movie instead (the whole movie as a book with some pictures in it). now that technology has advanced, we can now adapt Asimov's book like we did with the 2004 adaptation.

I actually have the illustrated screenplay. and it looks a lot more creative than the Will Smith version.
