The Zombieland writers' next movie follows a failed robot revolution

We've been anxiously awaiting the next movie from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and finally it's here! And it's all about the surviving robots after a failed robot uprising, and their pet humans!

The Hollywood Reporter has heard that Sony Pictures is sniffing around Reese and Wenick's "ambitious" new scifi script titled Epsilon, and they are very close to purchasing the rights. Here's the synopsis:

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.

Which sounds mighty ambitious. Should be interesting to see their slant on such a serious topic — or if it's even comical at all. Fingers crossed for another winner.
