Disney Pictures has picked up the rights to the film adaptation of graphic novel “Oblivion” from Radical Publishing reports Heat Vision
Set in an apocalyptic future where most people live high in the sky due to Earth’s surface being uninhabitable, a soldier stuck on the ground goes about his job repairing hunter drones which seek out and destroy members of a savage alien race.
He soon comes upon a beautiful woman whose craft has crashed nearby and together they set out on an epic adventure.
The move, said to be one of the more expensive deals of the year, re-teams Disney with “Tron Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski who created the comic and will both direct and produce alongside Barry Levine.
Kosinski is also said to be working on the remake of “The Black Hole” and turned in a recent script draft which the studio is apparently happy with.
