Oblivion Song


Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and artist Lorenzo De Felici’s comic Oblivion Song is being developed for film.

Word broke Tuesday via a joint announcement by Universal Pictures and the Kirkman-helmed media company, Skybound. As part of the announcement, it was also revealed that Universal’s Executive VP of Production Jon Mone and Director of Development Lexi Barta would oversee things on the studio’s end. Meanwhile, the adaptation will be produced by Skybound’s film folks, a group that includes Kirkman himself, David Alpert, Bryan Furst, and Sean Furst. Sean O’Keefe is attached to write the script.

Oblivion Song, for the uninitiated, is a comic book about a science project that caused a sizeable portion of Philadelphia to get sucked into another dimension. It’s a good book that has run for more than year, so there are many twists past that, but that’s the gist of the concept. For those interested in catching up, the first two trades are readily available now.

Full PR about the Oblivion Song adaptation can be found below:

Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures announced this morning that the sci-fi drama Oblivion Song—based upon the New York Times bestselling Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible, Outcast by Kirkman & Azaceta) and artist Lorenzo De Felici’s bestselling comic book series of the same name—is being developed for film.

Universal’s Executive Vice President of Production Jon Mone and Director of Development Lexi Barta will oversee the project on behalf of the studio. The Oblivion Song adaptation will be produced by Skybound’s film team, including Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst, and Sean Furst, with Sean O’Keefe attached to write the script.

O’Keefe’s latest project, Wonderland, which stars Mark Wahlberg with Peter Berg directing, recently wrapped filming. O’Keefe sold the first script based on the Robert B. Parker bestselling Spenser book series in a deal with Netflix.
