Jerry Bruckheimer to bring us World War Robot

Posted by LiveFor on July 31, 2009

Jerry Bruckheimer has snapped up feature rights to the graphic novel World War Robot from IDW Publishing.

The story is by Ashley Wood and recounted in war-diary form by participants on both sides, centers on a small band of humans and robots facing off in a battle on Earth, the moon and Mars.

The deal for the rights closed during Comic-Con last week in San Diego. Bruckheimer, as usual, hasn’t commented on the pact.

Ten-year-old IDW is home to such titles as “30 Days of Night,” “Popbot” and “Dark Days” along with licensed titles such as “24,” “Angel,” “CSI” and the Transformers toy line.

IDW has been eager to set up its books as film properties around town in order to generate more coin for the publishers. It’s currently the third-largest behind Marvel and DC.

The adaptation of the company’s “30 Days of Night,” released by Sony in 2007, grossed $40 million domestically.
