In a press release sent out today, it was announced that Sony Pictures has acquired the movie rights to the IDW Publishing comic book series, Zombies vs. Robots.
The comic, written and created by Chris Ryall with Ashley Wood handling artwork, tells the story of robots who fight off waves of hungry zombies as they try and protect the last surviving human.
Michael Bay, along with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and their Platinum Dunes Productions will produce Zombies vs. Robots in a collaboration with IDW and Circle of Confusion, with Sony handling distribution.
In the ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS comic series, the last remaining human in the world is protected by an assortment of robots against overwhelming zombie hordes. When the robots mistakenly expose the human infant’s presence to the zombies, it leads to an all-out battle for the survival of mankind. The series takes a playful look at a far-fetched concept, resulting in something that transcends the usual “vs” approach.
No more details are known about the adaptation or when we might see it.
