Terminators

We’ve certainly seen the story before: high technology machines and robots evolve, rise up, and take over the world of men. Whether it’s Battlestar Galactica, the Terminator franchise, or a movie like I, Robot, people love being scared by the thought of man-made machines turning on us and killing us all. If this trend is kept up, the robot apocalypse could become a genre in itself like zombies, but that isn’t stopping DreamWorks, who are on the verge of acquiring the rights to an unpublished manuscript entitled Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson.

So what makes this project so attractive? What makes Robopocalypse different from the other movies that we’ve seen? Well, it’s realism. Wilson is an actual Ph.D. in robotics, and he has injected a massive level of realism into his tale of man vs. machine, which is what immediately grabbed DreamWorks’ attention. Over the past few years, there have been some terrifying videos of actual man-made robots that are so freaky-realistic, you almost expect them to evolve and slaughter mankind.

Here’s what DreamWorks’ co-President Mark Sourian had to say:

Daniel H. Wilson’s cautionary tale of man versus machine grabbed us from the very beginning. Wilson’s background in robotics and artificial intelligence grounds his story with a frightening level of realism.

The project has been thrown on that wild and crazy fast track, but the book isn’t set for publication until 2011, so it’s unclear how that will all play out. Wilson also wrote the book How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion.
