DreamWorks Studios has picked up the film rights to Daniel H. Wilson’s unpublished manuscript “Robopocalypse” reports Reuters.
The cautionary tale explores the fate of the human race after a robot uprising. Wilson, who has a Ph.D. in robotics, has grounded his tale in a heavy degree of authenticity derived from real robot technology.
Dreamworks is fast-tracking development of the project. Wilson also penned 2005’s “How to Survive a Robot Uprising” and next year’s “Bro-Jitsu” which are being developed into films at Paramount and Nickelodeon respectively.
