TRON: LEGACY director Joseph Kosinski lines up new film, OBLIVION
As per expected, this year’s Comic-Con was not only much-hyped, but had the show stolen by Disney’s sole showing film (save a short video from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES) - TRON: LEGACY.
Featuring a batch of new footage, the film came out of the convention with a buzz that was deafening, having some people say that it could rival critical darlings like INCEPTION for best of the year honors come that time.
Now, apparently the filmmaker behind the sequel, Joseph Kosinski, may have a new film in the works. According to Deadline, the director is set to adapt a graphic novel that he made, called Oblivion. The project will be published later this year through Random House, and "takes place in an apocalyptic future where most people live above the clouds because the surface of the Earth is uninhabitable. A soldier is stuck on the desolate Earth repairing drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien race called The Scavengers. He comes across a beautiful woman who has crashed in a craft. Together they take an epic adventure that changes his world view."
He’s already offered the film to Disney, so given a complete lapse of judgment, this appears to be Disney’s next big sci-fi epic, and I must say, just from the cover of the book, it looks utterly fantastic. Personally, I adore what I’ve seen of TRON so far, and while a sequel would be welcome, this just screams awesome. I hope that this thing gets picked up soon, because I can’t wait to see what else Kosinski has in store for us.
