The board game Monsterpocalypse is going to be brought to the big screen. Yep, Dreamworks has indeed bought the movie rights, and has hired Director Tim Burton to helm the project. Scriptwriter John August (who wrote the script of Titan A.E.) is writing the screenplay right now, consulting with the game's creator Matt Wilson (who is also a co-producer). Monsterpocalypse the movie should be released in theaters end of 2012.
Producer Roy Lee revealed quite a few details about the upcoming Monsterpocalypse movie:
Sounds like their take on Monsterpocalypse is going to be epic!
Never played to the game, but I can understand why the fans love those collectibles: those monsters look awesome and the universe the game is based sounds quite interesting. And if there's someone who can bring Monsterpocalypse to life, it's definitely Tim Burton. But well, he will need a huge budget to do that. Will Dreamworks really follow?
Anyway I'm quite impatient to see the movie Monsterpocalypse!
