Joseph Kosinski, director of the Tron Legacy, is all set to take us to a whole other realm of existence known as Oblivion. Don’t be expecting any glowing suits or light-cycles though … this world is darker. A whole lot darker.
According to THR, “Kosinski has signed to direct the action feature and will produce along with Radical principal Barry Levine, filmmaker David Fincher, and Anonymous Content’s David Morrison. Oblivion also will become an illustrated novel, Radical Publishing’s first venture beyond comic books, done in a format featuring 40 fully painted landscape images that will accompany the prose.
The story centers on a battle-damaged soldier who, assigned to a desolate planet after a court-martial, patrols the bleak landscape in an effort to destroy the last vestiges of a primitive alien race. When a mysterious traveler arrives unexpectedly, their lives become inextricably linked as they are forced to question everything they know about this world and themselves.”
Primitive aliens? Desolate planets? Mysterious travelers? Sounds like a good time. Look for more on this one soon!
