Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick sell sci-fi script Epsilon to Sony

From zombies to robots...seems like a proper chain of emotional devolution!

THR claims Sony is on the brink of picking up EPSILON, an ambitious sci-fi spec script from ZOMBIELAND scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (shown right). Word is Michael De Luca will produce alongside Reese and Wernick, though no director has yet been attached.

Epsilon is set after an initial robot rebellion ended in failure and Earth operates on almost no electronics. The remaining robots seek refuge on a space station and begin to raise their own human lab rats, which they train to act as their agents. The main character is a man who discovers he is more human than he thought.

No electronics huh? Sounds like that new J.J. Abrams' show "Revolution" a little. It also sounds far more serious and straight forward than ZOMBIELAND, which was more of a comedy than anything else. Could be an interesting departure.

EPISLON hit the town on Monday, drew interest from Warner Bros. and DreamWorks, but ultimately went to Sony for roughly $1 million. It'll be fascinating to see who wins the directing gig and who will star. Got any suggestions?

Extra Tidbit: Emma Stone (ZOMBIELAND, above) is one sexy beast!
