Dreamworks Animation takes on Maintenance

Dreamworks Animation is set to adapt the OniPress comic Maintenance as a comedic animated feature, that stars two janitors who work for a company that supplies supervillains with their gadgets.

JoBlo says:

DWA has grabbed the rights to the Oni Press comic series MAINTENANCE, which follows a pair of janitors at a company that provides equipment for supervillains.

Originally WB had their mitts on this property and were trying to adapt it as a Men in Black style comedy for McG, but nothing happened with it.

So Dreamworks is going to make it into an animated feature. The book is described: You think your job is bad? Doug and Manny have you beat! These guys are janitors! But they’re not your typical custodial crew–no, sir! They’re the guys who keep things shiny and clean at TerroMax, Inc., the world’s biggest and best evil science think tank! When they’re not dealing with toxic spill monsters and talking mansharks, they still have to worry about mad scientists, crazy would-be dictators, and the cute girl who works at reception!

Sounds ripe with opportunities, and I am curious to see what Dreamworks does with it.

I wonder if TerroMax competes with ACME, who appears to supply Wile E. Coyote with his Roadrunner hunting equipment.
