Both Tim Burton and John August are in negotiations to work on the film adaptation of Monsterpocalypse. The film is based on a strategy board game created by Matt Wilson in which Japanese movie monsters do battle.

If the negotiations are successful, this would mark the fourth time the director/screenwriting team has collaborated. Previously, the pair worked together on Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Corpse Bride.

I haven't been this excited for a repeat collaboration since I heard that Bruce Willis was re-teaming with Matthew Perry on The Whole 10 Yards. Maybe it was the brain tumor talking, but that movie was funny as hell!  Don't worry. I'm in remission.

Hey, did I ever tell you about the time I was diagnosed with a brain tumor? It was right about the time The Whole 10 Yards came out. Great movie.

What, they're making a movie adaptation of Monsterpocalypse!  Awesome! (Dread Central)
