Make it a trilogy of movies. First one focusing on Florence and her species' plight, knowing that there aren't enough for a sustainable species, the vague second-class citizen status of being an anthropomorphic, and the dubious morality of her 'boss'. Like a cross between I Robot and Dude Where's My Car. The second movie picks up the AI thread that was hinted at in the first movie, going into the kidnapping, and the final wraps up the story.
Then of course you have six or seven spin-offs which completely ruins the IP's marketability, but that's a problem for a future generation.
