Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick

So many post-apocalyptic films hinge on their respective apocalypses actually, well, apocalypting, so a new script from Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick sounds like a nice twist on the old trope. THR reports that the pair have penned a script titled Epsilon that centers on what happens after a robot apocalypse doesn’t pan out the way our robo-overlords would have anticipated. The film “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.” So it’s kind of like a mix of Wall-E, Terminator, Robopocalypse, and that new television show Revolution? Sold!
