Joseph Kosinskis Scifi Project Dropped

Walt Disney Pictures decides to let the sci-fi actionner go, director now shopping the project to other studios.

Variety reports that Walt Disney Pictures has decided to not move forward with ‘Tron: Legacy’ director Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Horizons.’ The project is an adaptation of the director’s illustrated novel ‘Oblivion.’ A script was penned by William Monahan with rewrites from Karl Gadjusek.

‘Oblivion’ is set in a post-apocalyptic Earth, civilization lives above the clouds and scavengers illegally collect ancient artifacts from the polluted and destroyed surface below. But when one young scavenger discovers a crashed spacecraft planetside- and a beautiful woman 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 novel created by Kosinski (‘Tron: Legacy’), was penned by Arvid Nelson and illustrated by Andree Wallin. Disney is allowing the director and Radical Publishing to look to other studios and producers to develop the movie.
