Michael is a broken man with a gun. He is surrounded by armed police. A robot with medical training is dispatched to negotiate – but can it save him?
Dr. Easy is a prologue for a planned feature adaptation of ‘The Red Men’.
Shynola are worked with visual effects studio Jellyfish to bring to life the robot of the title, Dr Easy. In the book, Dr Easy is tall and light, the bodies fairly disposable and a mere casing for an intelligence that exists in the cloud.
