There are some robots versus zombie movies on the way, but none could be better than Dolph Lundgren leading an army of robots in Battle of The Damned.
According to Twitch, Lundgren stars in Christopher Hatton’s Battle Of The Damned. The action/horror/sci-fi hybrid shows an interesting battle against things that are dead and things that were never really alive.
The movie is being financed by Boku Films from Singapore and has Bleiberg Entertainment’s genre label Compound B set to produce. Development on the project has been quiet and slow, but now we have new artwork and a new synopsis.
Michael Bay is currently producing Zombies Versus Robots, an adaptation of Ashley Wood’s work. That project will likely have a much larger budget and won’t be seen until 2013. There is still no director signed on for the film.
Here’s the official synopsis of what will happen:
On the outskirts of civilization, a remote test facility lays ruin following a catastrophic security breach. All that remains is a handful of survivors, their small armory of weapons, and a fleet of the infected. The breach lead to a viral outbreak that left hundreds dead or mutated. Now the infected walk the land, stalking the few that stayed alive.
Led by private military operative Max Gatling (Dolph Lundgren, “The Expendables,” “Universal Soldier”), our heroes have learned to fight against the infected, in hopes that rescue will soon come from the outside world. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the emergence of another deadly threat.
The breach also gave way to the escape of a band of malfunctioning prototype robots. Armed and incredibly dangerous, the robots could either be an indomitable force… or an unexpected ally in their battle against the infected masses.
