Platinum Dunes to Inherit the Earth and Unleash Zombies vs. Robots for Sony

So much for Platinum Dunes taking a break from the genre! Word of another new project from the team of Brad Fuller and Andrew Form has broken online, and the good news is that it's not a remake or a sequel.

According to Deadline Hollywood's fixation with robots and the undead has fueled a spec package deal that includes underlying rights to IDW's Zombies vs. Robots.

JT Petty has used the Ashley Wood/Chris Ryall-created comic as the basis for a spec script called Inherit the Earth. Not clear yet whether that will be the title or not, but we'll keep an eye on things.

"The film focuses on a young girl who is the last survivor on earth. She is protected by a group of robots from a pack of zombies that are intelligent and evolved."

The film will be a co-production among Platinum Dunes, Circle of Confusion, and IDW and will be produced by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Dave Alpert, and Rick Jacobs.

JT Petty teamed with the PD people? Watch them take the script and re-write it until it'd dumber than dirt.

I got $20 on the robots.

I'm not gonna kill you. Your job will be to tell the rest of them that death is coming for them, tonight. Tell them Eric Draven sends his regards.
