Horror director Mike Flanagan is graduating to the big leagues after kicking the box office’s ass with Ouija: Origin of Evil. The director behind Hush and Oculus is now taking the reins of Sony’s Inherit the Earth, which he will write and is attached to direct, says Deadline.
Loosely based on the spec development script by JT Petty for IDW’s Zombies vs. Robots comic, it centers on a servant protector robot who is tasked to protect a young girl.
Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and Circle of Confusion are producing the film, which takes place in, “…a post-apocalyptic world overrun by zombies [that] has only one chance at recovery — a team of robots that must protect and clone a lone surviving human baby. They just need to do this amidst the endless hordes of zombies who have been driven rabid by their frustration at inedible bots and their lust to eat the one living brain left on the planet.”
The project is being overseen at Sony by EVP Production Jonathan Kadin. Filmmaker Andrew Adamson departed the project nine months ago.
