Warner Bros. is currently in negotiations to secure the film rights for “Monsterpocalypse,” a cult board game. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. beat out DreamWorks, Sony and a handful of other studios after a “heated bidding war,” which hit mid-six figures for the rights and writing alone.
“Monsterpocalypse” will be directed by the 2013 “Evil Dead” remake director Fede Alvarez from a script by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. Prior to Alvarez’s take, Tim Burton was developing a “Monsterpocalypse” adaptation around 2010, which stalled in development after 2013’s “Pacific Rim” was released, as the film carried a similar concept. Like “Pacific Rim,” the board game pits humans in mechanical suits against giant monsters.
“Monsterpocalypse” hasn’t been given a release date.
