“Hush” and “Ouija: Origin of Evil” helmer Mike Flanagan will write and is attached to direct “Inherit the Earth” for Sony Pictures and Platinum Dunes.
The story centers on a servant protector robot who is tasked to protect a young girl. Flanagan will re-conceive the entire project from a development script Sony acquired.
Andrew Adamson was previously attached to direct but dropped out of the project nine months ago. Dave Alpert, Rick Jacobs, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Ted Adams and Trevor Macy are producing.
