Zombieland writers sell Sci-Fi script called ‘Epsilon’ to SonyPosted 8:58 am on Friday, September 14th, 2012 by Narvin Seegoolam
Back in 2009, Zombieland hit theaters and was welcomed with great reception to moviegoers everywhere. Well the brains behind it, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, just sold a Sci-Fi script called Epsilon to Sony for around $1 Million. Not only that, but the duo will stay on to produce the project as well.
So what exactly is Epsilon? Here is a description according to THR:
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.
The concept for the movie actually sounds really interesting and it is definitely something I would like to check out if it releases. Currently, Reese and Wernick have been hard at work on a Zombieland sequel as well as a Deadpool spinoff. They also wrote the initial script for the highly anticipated G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but unfortunately the movie release was postponed from June 2012 to March 2013. If I use Zombieland as a judging platform, then I can honestly say that I have confidence in both of those guys for any upcoming films.
