Burton confirmed for Monsterpocalypse

Tim Burton is attached to direct the bigscreen adaptation of Matt Wilson’s board game Monsterpocalypse for DreamWorks.


The film tells of a group of giant monsters attacking the earth while human forces attempt to defend their home. When the monsters retreat they burrow underground and send a signal into space, plotting retaliation. With the monsters in hiding, the humans begin building giant, building-sized robots that will fight the monsters if and when they return. The majority of the film is said to take place during the battle between the monsters and the robots.


The film is being produced by Dick Zanuck and Lee. Tarik Heitmann, Gerald Moon and Doug Davison are exec producers. There’s speculation that “Monsterpocalypse” might be released in 3D
