6 UNDERGROUND, ROBOPOCALYPSE Novel Adaptation Up For Big Screen Treatment From Michael Bay

It's not hugely clear where on the timetable director Michael Bay's previously-announced take on DC property, Lobo, will be placed. Until then, it's anyone's guess as we now look toward reports on the noted Transformers franchise helmer's latest mention with two projects.

One of the two hails from 2011 per author Daniel H. Wilson's novel, Robopocalypse, which had initially been in the works since 2009 with Steven Spielberg at the helm prior to being put indefinitely on hold several years later. Publication house Doubleday released a sequel novel in 2014.
They are in your house. They are in your car. They are in the skies... Now they're coming for you. When the Robot War ignites humankind will be both decimated and, possibly, for the first time in history, united. Robopocalypse is a brilliantly conceived action-filled epic, a terrifying story with heart-stopping implications for the real technology all around us...
Further casting and crewing on Robopocalypse remains pending among other factors while Bay also plots original project, 6 Underground from Deadpool franchise scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. Story details are under wraps with Bay joining Skydance's David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger in producing the summer shoot ahead of a 2019 release.

per Variety:
“Throughout his career Michael Bay has been unparalleled in creating global theatrical events,” David Ellison, CEO of Skydance Media, said. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have this amazing team come together, bringing their unique style and vision to the movie.”
