The eagerly-anticipated British independent film, ROBOT OVERLORDS, is due for release in early 2015
Gollancz, an imprint of the Orion Publishing Group, is thrilled to announce the acquisition of World Rights to publish the official novelisation. The fully authorised tie-in novel will be written by the scriptwriter and co-creator of the science-fiction movie, Mark Stay.
From Tempo Productions and Pinewood Pictures, ROBOT OVERLORDS stars Gillian Anderson (THE X-FILES), Ben Kingsley (IRON MAN 3) and Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY).
