Without the background of a ongoing cold war with a rival superpower, could a Colossus be set in modern times?
ICBMs still exist and can be re-targeted anywhere. More countries actually have them now than when the movie was made. China is a major super power rival with a greater likelihood of overtaking the US economically and numerically with arms than the USSR ever did because they have embraced many capitalist ideas, and North Korea is a military rival.
