DreamWorks Animation Grabs Rights To Oni Press Comic MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE, the comic book published in 2006 by Oni Press has been picked up by DreamWorks Animation just before Hollywood closes for the holidays! The film rights were nabbed by DreamWorks after they turned around from Warner Bros.
Maintenance, written by Jim Massey and illustrated by Robbie Rodriguez is the story of two janitors who work for the biggest evil science company TerroMax, Inc. In addition to having to deal with repairing time machines, toxic spill monsters, they also have to put up with their boss, mad scientists, alien repomen, and the cute receptionist.
Full of pop culture references and comedic elements, Maintenance will be well suited for the world of animation, especially under DreamWorks. They’ve had success with similar films – Monster vs. Aliens, and the recently released Megamind.
There is no writer or director currently attached to Maintenance.
