Tim Burton Wanted For “Monsterpocalypse”

DreamWorks Pictures is pursuing Tim Burton to take a crack at directing a film adaptation of the miniatures game “Monsterpocalypse” says Deadline.

The board game involves battles against a variety of enemy monsters that take place in a metropolis filled with buildings. Game creator Matt Wilson is attached as co-producer.

The project is still in very preliminary stages and is one of several similar projects Dreamworks has on the boil, including the Drew Goddard-penned “Robopocalypse”.

Burton meanwhile is committed to other projects with both his long gestating “Dark Shadows” film adaptation and Disney’s “Maleficent” on his ‘to do’ list.
