Sony wins bid for ‘Epsilon’ script

Spec by 'Zombieland' scribes is set in a world after a robot uprising

Sony has acquired the spec “Epsilon” from the “Zombieland” scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.

Wernick and Reese will produce along with Michael De Luca. The package went out on Monday with several interested parties including DreamWorks and Warner Bros. before Sony came in with the winning bid.

The pic would be set in a world after a robot uprising that was eventually stopped by humans but has left the world without any use of electronics. The remaining robots have kidnapped 30 children and are training them to become its own agents that will infilitrate the world’s defense system.

The duo most recently wrote “G.I. Joe: Retalliation” which Paramount will release in 2013. De Luca is currently onboard to produce Universal and Focus’ adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey” with Dana Brunetti.

Wernick and Reese are repped by WME and attorney Ken Richman.
