Jerry Bruckheimer buys World War Robot

Jerry Bruckheimer has bought the rights to IDW's graphic novel World War Robot.

In what sounds like a similar take to World War Z, the story is in the form of a war diary scrawled by combatants on both sides (robots keep diaries?) during a conflict between men and machines on Earth, the moon and Mars.

Ashley Wood created, drew and penned the original title, which is apparently laced with political intrigue and dark humour.

We'd guess Bruckheimer's aiming to turn it into a new franchise, though it's not yet known which studio he'll take it to. Bet Disney gets first dibs...

Sound intriguing? Or do we have too many robo-pics?
