Robot Uprising Planned For 2084
No actually 2084 is the proposed film adaptation of an as-yet-unwritten three book series by Gregg Rosenblum that’s been snapped up by Alloy Entertainment. 24 showrunner Howard Gordon and writer/director James Wong will be on board for the sci-fi project.
On paper it looks liek the same old familiar story: robots, created to help mankind, have enslaved us all. No doubt we probably deserved it.
Wong is best known for Final Destination and Final Destination 3, so that’s a series of grisly, imaginative deaths which probably won’t turn up in 2084 as it’s a teen series. Gordon as well as showrunner (that’s someone who is responsible for the day to day running of the sets, a bit like an executive producer) for 24 has also worked on Buffy and Angel.
Rogue robots? Again? Zzzzz…
