Co-Presidents of Production of DreamWorks Mark Sourian and Holly Bario, and Jason Kaufman, Executive Editor and Vice President of Doubleday announced today that both studios have pre-emptively acquired the movie rights to Daniel Wilson's unpublished manuscript "Robopocalypse".

"Robopocalypse" explores the fate of the human race following a robot uprising.

DreamWorks is fast-tracking the project, and set a release date sometime in 2011, the same year publisher scheduled to publish the novel.

Mark Sourian said, "Daniel H. Wilson's cautionary tale of man versus machine grabbed us from the very beginning. His background in robotics and artificial intelligence grounds his story with a frightening level of realism and he has created an exhilarating story that we think audiences will really respond to."

Jason Kaufman also commented, "As a book editor, you're always looking for something unique and riveting to come across the transom. Robopocalypse is one of the most exciting and original novels I've read in a very long time. Daniel H. Wilson is not only a brilliant robotics engineer but also an extraordinary writing talent."

Wilson previously wrote "How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion," and Pulitzer winning "How to Build a Robot Army: Tips on Defending Planet Earth Against Aliens, Ninjas and Zombies." His next book, "Bro-Jitsu: The Martial Art of Sibling Smackdown," will be released next year.
