Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to produce the animated family comedy The Mitchells vs. the Machines for Sony Pictures Animation.
The Mitchells vs. the Machines is being directed by Mike Rianda, who penned the script with his Gravity Falls colleague Jeff Rowe, while Kurt Albrecht is also serving as producer.
Per Deadline, the logline for the movie reads:
The Mitchells are a dysfunctional but loving family whose road trip is interrupted by a tech uprising that threatens mankind: All around the world, the electronic devices people love – from phones to self-driving cars to a sleek new line of personal robots – turn on humanity. With the help of two malfunctioning robots and the family’s delightfully overweight pug, the Mitchells will have to get past their problems and work together to save each other and the world.
