Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes will develop the IDW Publishing comic book Zombies vs. Robots for a feature adaptation with Sony Pictures. Screenwriter J.T. Petty used the comic book as the basis for his spec script Inherit the Earth, which was also included in the package deal for Platinum Dunes and Sony.
The story revolves around a young girl who is the last human left on Earth after a worldwide zombie outbreak. She is protected by a group of robots from the fierce zombies, who are more intelligent than zombies we've seen in the past. Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood created the comic book series.
Michael Bay will produce Zombies vs. Robots along with Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form, David Alpert, and Rick Jacobs. Coincidentally, David Alpert is also an executive producer on the hit AMC zombie series, The Walking Dead.
No production schedule was given for Zombies vs. Robots.
