Sony Pictures has purchased the rights to the high-concept comic book series, Zombies vs. Robots and will develop the adaptation through Platinum Dunes, Deadline reports.
The series, from Ashley Wood and Chris Ryall, features a post-apocalyptic world in which humanity’s last survivor, a young girl, is protected from zombie hordes by a team of robots. The original miniseries was followed by a sequel, “Zombies vs. Robots vs. Amazons.”
Wood is also the artist behind another post-apocalyptic robot story, World War Robot, set for adaptation at Walt Disney Pictures under producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
Platinum Dunes has another indie comic book adaptation on its slate with it’s planned reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
