More on Tim Burton's big-screen Monsterpocalypse

What's MONSTERPOCALYPSE? An action-packed strategy game of collectible miniatures for two players ages 10 and up, featuring high-quality pre-painted plastic monsters, vehicles, and interactive city structures that impact and shape gameplay.

But wait, there's more! It's also an upcoming 3D movie project from Tim Burton, who apparently wants to out-kaiju the kind of material that influenced the game (GODZILLA, KAMEN RIDER, etc.), with his frequent collaborator John August (BIG FISH) already poking at the script.

Slashfilm chatted with the movie's producer Roy Lee and got some specifics, listed below in delicious bites:

- It could hit theaters by the end of 2012

-Will not feature other properties like Voltron

-The plot involves giant monsters who attack earth. After the humans fight back, the monsters retreat, but it is quickly discovered that they didn’t leave, but instead burrowed underground and are sending some sort of signal into space. The humans prepare for a possible future attach and developed giant robots that will fight the monsters if and when they return.

-Most of the movie is going to be during that battle between the giant robots and the giant monsters.

-Tim Burton is developing the look for the monsters with Ken Ralston, four time Academy Award winner who has been involved with the visual effects on films such as FOREST GUMP, BACK TO THE FUTURE, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, STAR WARS and more

-The monsters and robots are each the size of a very tall building. The robots are controlled by a crew inside of each one of these robots, and we’ll be seeing the battles from the inside of the bridge and the outside
