Sony has selected Greg Berlanti to direct the robot uprising film Epsilon. The sci-fi actioner has a script by Zombieland and G.I. Joe: Retaliation scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and takes place in the aftermath of a failed robot uprising, in which Earth operates on almost no electronics. In the world of the film, the remaining robots have taken refuge on a space station where they begin to raise their own human lab rats, which they train to act as their agents. The film’s protagonist is a man who discovers he is more human than he thought. Heat Vision reports that Berlanti has closed a deal to direct the film, with Michael De Luca onboard to produce alongside Reese and Wernick.

Berlanti is best known as the executive producer and showrunner of such TV series as Brothers & Sisters, Everwood, and No Ordinary Family. On the feature front, Berlanti scripted Green Lantern and the 2010 comedy/drama Life as We Know It, but most recently he has been serving as executive producer and showrunner on The CW’s Arrow. Epsilon certainly has a interesting take on the “robot uprising” concept, and it marks Berlanti’s biggest directorial project to date.
