Inherit the Earth, which is based on the popular IDW comic book Zombies Vs. Robots, has locked in director Andrew Adamson. He is best known for Shrek, Shrek 2 and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Inherit the Earth is coming from Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes and Sony.

Oren Uziel is behind the latest draft of the screenplay, which follows a group of robots set to protect the last human on earth, a young girl, from a ravenous pack of roving zombies. The original comic book was created by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood. Michael Bay will produce alongside Platinum Dunes' Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, the same team responsible for this past summer's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The film will be live-action.

Andrew Adamson most recently directed the movie Mr. Pip for Focus Features, starring Hugh Laurie. He also directed the James Cameron produced Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away. Inherit the Earth does not have a set release date at this time.
