Benderspink to produce comic adaptation

Disney has picked up feature rights to the graphic novel “Pet Robots” and set it up with Chris Bender and JC Spink through their Benderspink banner.

Blue Dream Studios began its publishing division last year with titles including “The Dreamland Chronicles” and “Ed’s Terrestrials.”

Benderspink has “Power & Glory” set up at New Line, “Exempt” set up at Overture and “The Guy Not Taken” at DreamWorks.
