Sony Pictures Takes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick’s Epsilon


Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have sold an original sci-fi script, Epsilon, to Sony Pictures, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. The pair will produce the project alongside Michael DeLuca.

Set in the future, Epsilon finds Earth in the aftermath of a failed robotic rebellion that has wiped the planet of its electronics. “Surviving” robots inhabit an orbiting space station where they’ve raised their own humans to do their bidding.

Best known for writing 2009’s Zombieland, Reese and Wernick are also responsible for the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation and 20th Century Fox’s still-not-greenlit Deadpool.
