Folks, we’re starting to wonder if Phil Lord and Christopher Miller evenlikethe human race. TheSpider-Verseproducers—whose other success stories includeThe Lego Movie,21 Jump Street,Clone High, and all those other things you like—have put together a whole bunch of world-ending scenarios over the years, fromLast Man On Earth’s super-virus, to the wastelands ofThe Lego Movie 2to a reality in which the sky is cloudy witha chance of meatballs and/or death. Now,THRreportsthat Lord and Miller—fresh off a Golden Globe win forSpider-Man, and the opening of the latestLego—have become the subject of a competitive bidding war for their new project,The Last Human.

Based off a kids’ book by Lee Bacon, the film would tell the tale of XR_395, a “12-year-old robot” who ends up stumbling onto a living human being, despite the fact that the species is supposed to be, uh, extinct in the film’s robot-controlled world, which also exists “without crime, pollution, or war.” (Like we said: Bleak.) The pair end up going on a journey together, learning some lessons about rule-breaking and prejudice in the process.

Lord and Miller haven’t directed a movie to completion since 2014’s22 Jump Street; since then, they’ve stuck to writing and producing, plus that wholeunfortunateSolodebacle. They’re also supposedly on the hook to directArtemis, a 2020 adaptation of a book fromThe Martian’s Andy Weir.
