January 9th, 2015 by Marc Comments


IDW’s epic comic book tale Robots Vs Zombies is coming to a screen near you soon. Ish.

Andrew Adamson, the director of Shrek 1 & 2 and Chronicles of Narnia, is set to helm the movie version according to Variety.

The movie however will be called Inherit The Earth and will be produced by Sony and Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes shingle from a screenplay by y Oren Uziel.

The comic is written by IDW cheif Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood and is the story of a group of robots who protect the last little girl on earth from a zombie horde. IDW will also co-produce the movie.

Based on the IDW Publishing comicbook “Zombies vs. Robots” by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood, the story follows a group of robots who protect a young girl, the last human on Earth, from a pack of intelligent zombies.

What say you? Are you excited? Is this IDW’s way of throwing their hat in the ring with Marvel and DC? More as we get it…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
