EPSILON (Script Bought)


Sony Pictures is in negotiations to pick up Epsilon, a sci-fi spec script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick that has Michael DeLuca attached to produce along with the Reese and Wernick, THR reports.

The project hit Hollywood studios on Monday and drew strong interest from Warner Bros. and DreamWorks. Sources say the Sony deal closed in the $1 million range.

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.

“Ambitious” is how one source who read the script described the project.

The duo-hit writer gold with the 2010 hit Zombieland, released by Sony. Since then, the duo worked on GI Joe: Retaliation at Paramount and Deadpool at Fox, and they wrote an adaptation of the comic Cowboy Ninja Viking for Disney, among other pursuits.
