Dreamworks Animation (Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon) have acquired the adaptation rights to Maintenance.

Maintenance, an Oni Press comic book, “follows the exploits of two janitors who work for TerroMax, Inc., the world’s biggest and best evil science think tank. When they’re not dealing with toxic spill monsters and menial time machine repairs, they have to contend with their boss, a multitude of mad scientists, jetpack-equipped cavemen, alien repomen, and the cute girl who works at reception”.

The comic book was written by Jim Massey and illustrated by Robbi Rodriquez.

Warner Bros. previously held the adaptation rights as a possible vehicle for McG, but the rights were let go during a turnaround from the studio.

THR reported this.
