First vampires, then werewolves, now zombies and robots have taken over the movie industry. According to Deadline, Michael Bay and his production company Platinum Dunes have partnered up with Sony Pictures to create Zombies vs Robots. This isn’t a joke! The film is an adaptation of the IDW comic book of the same name.
The site claims that Sony purchased the rights to the comic and they plan to develop it through Platinum Dunes. The premise of the film will center on “a young girl who is the last survivor on earth. She is protected by a group of robots from a pack of zombies that are intelligent and evolved.”
With upcoming projects like Cowboys vs Aliens, Zombies vs Robots shouldn’t be that much of a stretch. The original comic was followed by a sequel called Zombies vs. Robots vs. Amazons. Yes, they went there.
At this point, we should start tackling overall properties like Alien vs Predator or Freddy vs Jason. How about “True Blood” vs “The Vampire Diaries?” Or how about the one we’ve all be waiting for Harry Potter vs Twilight? We know it will never happen (the Potter folks have too much class) but it would be fun to see.
What do you think of Bay producing this film?
