DreamWorks comfirmed that Tim Burton is on board to develop and direct the feature adaptation of Monsterpocalypse board game, which the studio acquired the filming rights in May 2010.

Burton's frequent screenwriting collaborator, John August, is also on board to write the adaptation script which centers on giant robots developed by humans to fight against the invading alien monsters.

Dick Zanuck and Roy Lee are producing "Monsterpocalypse". Matt Wilson, the creator of the board game is also co-producing, while Tarik Heitmann, Gerald Moon and Doug Davison are exec producing.

"Monsterpocalypse" will most probably be released in 3D, though there is no confirmation from DreamWorks as yet.

Movie is set for release at year end of 2012, which DreamWorks will be distributing.
