EXCLUSIVE: Just because Tim Burton is heading the jury at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival doesn’t mean business stops. I’m hearing that DreamWorks has just acquired the screen rights to Monsterpocalypse, and they are already making overtures to Burton to be the creative catalyst. Talks are early stage, and right now only game creator Matt Wilson is attached to be co-producer. Monsterpocalypse is a kaiju-themed collectible miniatures game. It’s a board game that involves battles against a variety of enemy monsters that take place in a metropolis filled with buildings. Interestingly, DreamWorks is also developing a film based on the Daniel H. Wilson robot attack novel Robopocalypse, which is being adapted by Cloverfield‘s Drew Goddard as a possible directing vehicle for Steven Spielberg. DreamWorks has several apocalyptic scenarios covered.
