New Tron Director's Lone-Alien-Hunter Film In The Works

Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski's novel Oblivion is getting its own movie adaptation. So hopefully if Tron is a success, we'll get to see the story about a soldier on a solo mission to wipe out an alien race.

We're not surprised that Tron Legacy's director Joseph Kosinski's illustrated novel Oblivion is going to be made into a movie. The buzz generated by Tron, in the past week alone, should be enough for Kosinski to squeeze out a couple more projects from.

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.

Radical's Barry Levine, Fight Club director David Fincher and David Morrison will produce the film — but we're still waiting to get our hands on the book, which has about 40 painted landscapes from Tae Young Choi.
