Jack Black to Survive A Robot Uprising?

Jack Black and Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink have purchased the rights to Daniel H. Wilson’s satirical novel How To Survive A Robot Uprising.

First of all, yes, that is the same Daniel H. Wilson who wrote Robopocalypse (which is to be adapted for the screen by Steven Spielberg).

According to io9, the previous rights-holders of HTSARU (who had hoped to adapt the book into a Mike Myers vehicle) twiddled their thumbs for too long, allowing Black and Pink to swoop in and take them off their hands.

It is unknown if Black will star (although he probably will), or if Pink will direct (although he probably will).

Discuss: Transformers 3, Real Steel, Robopocalyse and How To Survive a Robot Uprising. Can we officially call the robot genre a trend? And more importantly, will teenage girls soon find themselves swooning over robots instead of sullen vampires?
