"Attack the Block" helmer Joe Cornish has signed on to direct the graphic novel adaptation "Rust" at 20th Century Fox says Heat Vision.

Royden Lepp created the original comic described as a "high-octane adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time". Here a family farm is visited by a mysterious boy with a jetpack and a giant decommissioned war robot.

Aline Brosh McKenna, who adapted the screenplay, is producing along with Simon Kinberg.
