Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.28.11] scifi art

Nimrod Antal (Predators, Vacancy) is currently packaging a scifi project he wrote and will direct called Repossession of Max the Companion Robot which seems like a cross between Repo Men, Blade Runner and I, Robot or something. Check out the first details and artwork below.

Set in a future in which robots are as ubiquitous as pets are today. And if you don’t make your robot loan payments, your mechanical best friend will be repossessed by people like Lee, a repo agent who refuses to see robots as sentient individuals and has built up large debts betting on robo-races.

Lee’s latest repo job takes him to the doorstep of Mike and Max, the former a
man who has lost everything in a tragedy, and the latter an adorable companion robot who would do anything to stay with his master. With the help of the little robot, the two men end up joining forces to take down the repo business, discovering brand-new destinies along the way.

Check out some first concept art from the project. It's rough, but gives you sense of the world, which may end up being more than a little Blade Runner.
