Way back in February of 2011 we learned that Sony and Platinum Dunes were assembling a new undead epic titled INHERIT THE EARTH, based on the IDW comic title "Zombies Vs. Robots" by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood. It seems the adaptation is finally gaining some traction as Variety is reporting that a director has been found.

SHREK and CHRONICLES OF NARNIA helmer Andrew Adamson is set to direct the live action INHERIT THE EARTH for Sony and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes shingle.

At the time of that initial story THE BURROWERS' JT Petty was working on a draft of the screenplay. The current draft is by Oren Uziel.

Based on the IDW Publishing comicbook “Zombies vs. Robots”, the story follows...

...a group of robots who protect a young girl, the last human on Earth, from a pack of intelligent zombies.

The film is a co-production of Platinum Dunes, Circle of Confusion and IDW Publishing, and it’s produced by Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form, Dave Alpert and Rick Jacobs. Ted Adams is executive producer.
