Dreamworks Unleashes The “Robopocalypse”

DreamWorks Studios has picked up the film rights to Daniel H. Wilson’s unpublished manuscript “Robopocalypse” reports Reuters.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.
