First details for Joseph Kosinski’s (director for Tron (2): Legacy) upcoming sci-fi project have popped up at ComingSoon.net and TheMovingPicture.net. While both sources agree on the title Oblivion (not related to the Bethesda role playing game) and the fact that the film will be accompanied by a
comic graphic novel, the summaries on both sites are quite different:
The story is set in post-apocalyptic Earth, where civilization lives above the clouds and scavengers illegally collect artifacts from the polluted and destroyed surface below. When one young scavenger discovers a crashed spacecraft planetside–and a beautiful women within–he rejoices at the find. Little does he realize that his discovery will lead him to a journey filled with romance, adventure and unimaginable danger.
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.
They both sound pretty interesting especially after seeing the Comic Con footage for Tron: Legacy and with the mentioning of David Fincher as one of the producers.
