With “G-Force” set to cross $50 million at the box-office in its first week, super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has turned his eye towards his next huge cinematic money makers.  And what’s even more lucrative than guinea pigs with guns?  Killer robots.  In a deal concluded at Comic-Con, Bruckheimer has acquired the rights to the IDW graphic novel “World War Robot”.  The diary-style book focuses on a small band of humans and robots facing off in a battle on Earth, the moon and Mars.  IDW chief Ted Adams will produce along with “Robot” author Ashley Wood, according to Variety.  We’ll give you more information on this project as we hear it.
