Entering the realm of comic-book adaptations, Walt Disney Pictures is on its way to bring to the surface high-tech comedy "Pet Robots" based on a graphic novel of the same name alongside BenderSpink's Chris Bender and J.C. Spink, Variety has reported.
Names to direct, adapt, and star are still unknown yet, but it has been confirmed that Jake Weiner will executive produce with Jon Silk co-producing. Weiner is no stranger to the comic-book-adaptation thing, having previously co-produced 2005's "A History of Violence", New Line Cinema's film version of the John Wagner and Vince Locke graphic novel.
Written by Scott Christian Sava and drawn by Diego Jourdan, the original, a kid-friendly material, tells about the fun-filled adventure of four students who lose their way during a field trip to the Rooty Tooty Toy Company. In their attempt to catch up with the rest of the class, they accidentally stumble onto a room inhabited only by four military-looking toy robots. Unbeknown to the foursome, the robots follow them home by the end of the trip, bound to stay by their side.
