Disney snaps up “Tron” director’s comic book
“Oblivion,” the upcoming illustrated novel from “Tron Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski, has found a home with Disney.
The story is set on a future Earth, where civilization lives above the clouds and alien scavengers stalk the irradiated surface below. When a surface drone repairman finds a woman inside a crashed spacepod planetside , it leads him on a journey filled with romance and adventure.
Kosinski, who will direct and produce the feature version, created the comic. Writtem by Arvid Nelson and illustrated by Andree Wallin, it will be released in the fall by Radical Publishing.
He spent the last year honing the story while putting the finishing touches on “Tron,” which is shaping up to be one of the most important movies for Disney in quite a while. The costly sci-fi remake is set for release on December 17.
