Michael Bay Assembling Zombies vs. Robots Movie

image

Zombies and robots will finally discover who's best on the big screen, thanks in part to Michael Bay.

Ashley Wood and Chris Ryall's IDW comic book series Zombies vs. Robots pits the two classic foes against each other in a battle to protect humanity. That battle is now becoming a feature film with Michael Bay as a producer.

Bay is most recently known for his work on the latest Transformers movies, so he has plenty of experience with robots. He's also produced horror films like the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, giving him a leg up on dealing with the creepiness of creatures like zombies.

Zombies vs. Robots follows a world devastated by the zombie apocalypse where a group of robots must protect the last remaining human. It really has a pretty appropriate title.

Like the book, the movie will focus on a young girl who is the last human alive. The zombies in the film will be "intelligent and evolved" according to Deadline, with a group of robots the girl's only defense. The director doesn't appear to have been named, but Bay is definitely one of multiple producers on the project.

No matter how you feel about Bay, I don't think this is a property that can be mishandled. Unless they also try to throw some ninjas, monkeys, and pirates in there. That'd just be too much.

Which is more ridiculous, Zombies vs. Robots or Cowboys vs. Ailens? Your pick.

Tom Goldman:

Oh, you just watch him. He'd have trouble organising Valve delaying something.

>Zombies vs. Robots

Yay

>Micheal Bay

No.

No!
Bad Michael!
Away!
Get away from that promising movie! We don't want your grimy paws on it.
Go play with your transformers.

I don't understand. If they're INTELLIGENT zombies, why make them zombies at all?

Well, the only reason Michael Bay let them be intelligent was so that they could have the smarts to set up ambushes. How? WITH LOTS OF EXPLOSIVES! How will the robots fight back? EXPLOSIVES!

BOOM, MICHAEL BAY! BOOM!

'intelligent and evolved' zombies? i thought the point of zombies was that they were mindless monstrosities. And bay sounds like a terrible idea.

When I first read it, I thought it said he was making a Plants vs. Zombies movie. I nearly screamed in horror.

This, less so. Mainly because I have no idea what any of this is about.

Robots and zombies?! That's crazy! That's like if someone combined cowboys and-Oh, wait.

Yes, I know the joke has been made. Shut up.

Wanna bet.
Step one; The girl isn't alone, there is a boy out there as well.
Step Two: He falls in love with her, but she doesn't like him right away. Also, he has something to do with the zombies.
Step Three: He proves his worth to her by saving her and they fall in love.
Step Four: Add loads of American flags, lens flares, explosions and army stuff.

Somewhere between there, some zombies and robots fight in the background.

Zombies with rocket launchers VS robots with nukes, if Mr. Bay is involved.

This is Micheal Bay film, so it'll probably end up looking more like Lens Flare vs. Shaky Cameras.

This is, however, a movie that seems to have no purpose besides mindless action, so it might be good since there's pretty much no sutle messages that need to be shoved in our faces.

It's the only way the Zombies would have any chance of defeating Robots. Most of the time Zombies have barely enough strength to shuffle at a brisk pace and sink their teeth into human flesh. Robots are made of metal and don't have to worry about being turned if bitten. They could literally just stand in a crowd of Zombies and bash their heads in until they run low on power.

My question is: What's the point of protecting ONE human? She can't repopulate the Earth on her own and even if there was a male and female, all the inbreeding would result in a less than spectacular human race.

Oh, god. Imagine that? I would cry so hard.
Bay: WHOO DE FUCK GIVES A SHEET ABOUT SUN THE SUNFLOWERS WILL SHEWT BOOOOMBS!

And I thought Cowboys and Aliens was original but now I can't wait for Ninjas vs. Pirates

it would be hilarious to see Capt. Sparrow stumble by an open doorway or something

This... sounds... fucking...awesome.

Can a change be made in the original post describing the Nightmare on Elm Street remake as a comedy instead of a horror? Michael Bay has no experience with horror.

JUMBO PALACE:
This... sounds... fucking...awesome.

Like how a live Transformers sounds fucking awesome? Not in the hands of Bay it isn't.

I think we should just dismiss this as a lost oppurtunity and wait for Cameron to fix Avatar with Avatar 2.

Zombies are only a threat to biological beings. Robots would win.
Zombies are still more awesome though.

...

...not sure if want...

michael bay is ridiculous, but.. i mean so is plants vs zombies. and even more ridiculous is the idea of turning that game into a movie. why NOT go the extra ridiculous bit and get michael bay up in there? shit, I say, keep the ridiculous rolling. shia gets to be the dancing zombie. let's do this right. Jason Statham drives the zamboni. Get Paris Hilton as the newspaper zombie. Have her read something funny -- not a newspaper, but an open pizza box. And on the front of that box in bold letters is printed "HOT". And the bobsled team? EDDIE MURPHY, MARTIN LAWRENCE, CHRIS TUCKER AND MARLON WAYANS.

Balls to the wall, man. If you're going to do something wrong, do it spectacularly wrong. At least that way you've still done something spectacular.

Well he's just a producer for now. Maybe they'll get someone better to direct, he said in complete denial.

Kopikatsu:
BOOM, MICHAEL BAY! BOOM!

Michael Bay-splosions!!

Tom Goldman:

No matter how you feel about Bay, I don't think this is a property that can be mishandled.

Oh I'm sure he'll find a way.

BOOM, MICHAEL BAY! BOOM!

Of course, there'll be a huge US Flag in the background, and eventually AMERICUH will defeat the threat.

Can't we just have Robots and Zombies vs. Micheal Bay?

That's a movie I'd pay to see.

I can honestly say that I have no bad or good reaction to this,

I'm speechless, but if he DOES manage to screw it up, I'm gonna laugh, for at least an hour

:D

Reminds me of this song. Hopefully it will be as awesome.

I like the art. Good luck Mr.Bay

Michael.... if you fuck this up, i am gonna cut your hands and your tung to make sure you will never make another movie again.

Firoth:

I was wondering that, too, but then I thought "Who cares. It's pretty much just an excuse to have robots and zombies fight each other anyway."

In other words, it's an excuse plot. Don't think about it too much, just sit back and enjoy the insanity.

Any other time, I'd mock the ridiculous concept.... But since Ashley wood obviously illustrated the book.... I may have to look further.

"Bay is most recently known for his work on the latest Transformers movies, so he has plenty of experience with robots. He's also produced horror films like the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, giving him a leg up on dealing with the creepiness of creatures like zombies."

This OP talks about these movies as if they were a credit to Bay. They were all some of the worst over hyped tripe I've seen since the Dick Tracey movie.

Robots vs. Zombies???

Yeah I'm gonna have to say that Robots will be the victor in this battle, no questions asked.

Don't forget pandas.
I would like to ask you a question (no not that one). What is the point of protecting the last remaining human? I mean unless there is a sperm bank with some remaining stock. Even then the process will have to be repeated and there will probably be incest.
