We first reported on this project back in September, when Sony acquired the spec screenplay from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland, G.I. Joe Retaliation). The story is set in the aftermath of a failed robot uprising, which has left most of the Earth without electricity. A group of robots take refuge on a space station, where they raise their own humans to do their bidding. The plot centers on a man who realizes he is more human that he previously believed.
Greg Berlanti previously directed the romantic comedy Life as We Know It, and he worked on the screenplays for Green Lantern and Wrath of the Titans. He is better known in the TV world, where he created shows such as Everwood, Eli Stone, No Ordinary Family, and the mini-series Political Animals.
