Disney Acquires OBLIVION Film Rights
Radical Publishing's illustrated novel heads to the movies...
Radical Publishing announces that Disney has acquired the film adaptation of OBLIVION, based on Radical Publishing's illustrated novel created by Tron: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, written by Rex Mundi creator, Arvid Nelson, and with illustrations by Andrée Wallin. OBLIVION will be directed by Joseph Kosinki and will be produced by Radical's President and Publisher, Barry Levine, and Kosinski. Radical Studios' Executive Vice President Jesse Berger is signed on as Executive Producer. Kosinki is repped by Verve and Anonymous Content while Radical is repped by CAA and David Schiff.
OBLIVION, the 128-page illustrated novel, will be released in Summer 2011 and will feature prose, combined with over 40 fully painted landscape renderings. OBLIVION will be distributed worldwide through Random House.
In a future where the Earth's surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.
At San Diego Comic-Con, Radical Publishing handed out a free preview book featuring a sampling of OBLIVION's artwork and prose. Pictured are a few scans I made from that preview book to give you an idea of the beautiful new sci-fi fans can expect.
