The current draft of the screenplay is by Oren Uziel. JT Petty wrote previous drafts.
Based on the IDW Publishing comicbook “Zombies vs. Robots” by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood, the story follows a group of robots who protect a young girl, the last human on Earth, from a pack of intelligent zombies.
The film is a co-production of Platinum Dunes, Circle of Confusion and IDW Publishing, and it’s produced by Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Dave Alpert and Rick Jacobs. Ted Adams is executive producer.
Hannah Minghella and Jonathan Kadin are overseeing for the studio.
Adamson made a name for himself directing the first two films in the “Shrek” franchise but has since moved into the world of live action, directing the first installment in the Narnia franchise, “Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.”
He most recently directed the Focus Features pic “Mr. Pip,” starring Hugh Laurie, and also helmed the James Cameron-produced “Cirque du Soleil: World’s Away.” He is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and attorney Peter Nelson at Nelson Davis Wetzstein.
