‘Pet Robot’s Gains Screenwriter
Disney has signed Colin Trevorrow (Stealing Time) to write the adaptation of Scott Christian Sava’s Pet Robots. The studio optioned the graphic novel in 2007.
Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a high-tech comedy set in the present, Pet Robots revolves around futuristic robots that fall into the hands of the least likely group of people.”
Sava founded Blue Dream Studios to produce animation and graphic novels before selling it to IDW which continues to publish the graphic novel. Trevorrow sold the screenplay to Tester to DreamWorks, in addition to Time which is currently with Walt Becker at Sony.
Chris Bender and JC Spink of Benderspink will produce.
