Mike Myers to Deal With a "Robot Uprising"

by | April 27, 2006 | Comments

Funnyman Mike Myers will star in Paramount’s sci-fi comedy "How to Survive a Robot Uprising," a movie based on Daniel Wilson’s tongue-in-cheek how-to manual.

Says Variety: "Paramount bought the book last year and set "Reno 911" creators Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant to pen the script. Myers sparked to playing the lead character, a technical administrator who has the thankless job of sounding warnings against the growing presence of robots and researching ways to keep those robots from taking over. Studio has received notes from Myers on the Lennon and Garant draft."

Looks like the next time we’ll see (er … hear) Myers is in next year’s "Shrek 3."
