Director to adapt the comic book series…

Variety has learned that New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Adamson (‘Mr. Pip,’ ‘Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away,’ ‘Shrek,’ ‘Chronicles of Narnia’) is to step behind the camera for an live-action feature based on Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood’s comic book series ‘Zombies vs. Robots.’

To be titled ‘Inherit the Earth,’ the sci-fi tale follows a group of robots who must protect the last human on Earth, a young girl, from a pack of intelligent zombies.

Oren Uziel is re-writing the script, based on a previous draft by JT Perry. Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing alongside Dave Alpert and Rick Jacobs.
