Imagine if you will waking up to find that the world has ended and you’re all that’s left to try and fix things. Sound like a daunting task? You bet it is; however, should you be a robot… well, that makes things at least a little easier, right? Wrong!

THR reports that Will Dunn is being tapped to write Rosa, 20th Century Fox’s project based on an animated short from Jesus Orellana. Orellana is on board to direct the project, which is being produced by Simon Kinberg as well as Raymond Brothers and Scott Glassgold of IAM Entertainment.

Rosa, which made waves when it played at several film festivals last year, is described as “an epic sci-fi short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a cyborg deployed from the Kernel project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. Rosa will soon learn that she is not the only entity that has awakened and must fight for her survival.

Orellana, a comic book artist, made the short from his home computer in Barcelona, with the intent of directing a full-length feature. Check out the original short below.
