Michael Dougherty has teamed with Walt Disney Pictures and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers on Calling All Robots, says the Hollywood Reporter. The project is described as an animated sci-fi adventure the screenwriter plans to direct using the same type of performance capture technology recently deployed to produce Beowulf. Dougherty will write the project with Breehn Burns and Simeon Wilkins, who will serve as artists and visual designers on the project. The trio conceived the idea together.┬á ImageMovers’ Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey will produce.

Plot Concept: Details of the project are being kept under wraps, but it uses performance capture to “tell a story that’s a throwback to old Godzilla movies,” Dougherty said. “I grew up watching Godzilla movies. This film is very much rooted in those movies.”
