Heat Vision Blog reports that DreamWorks Animation has acquired the rights to the Oni Press comic book Maintenance.
Jim Massey created the comic book, with illustrations by Robbi Rodriguez, which revolves around two janitors who work at TerroMax, an evil scientist think tank. Their daily duties include time machine repair and cleaning up after toxic spills and monsters while dealing with mad scientists, jet-packed cavemen, aliens and an attractive receptionist.
The project was pulled out of turnaround from Warner Bros., where it was being developed as a vehicle for McG to direct. Joe Ballarini was working on the script while it was at Warner Bros., but no writers or directors are attached to the project at this time.
No production schedule for Maintenance was announced.
