Word emerged last night from Comic-Con International that Joe Cornish will direct Fox’s adaptation of Royden Lepp’s graphic novel Rust: Visitor in the Field.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Attack the Block director and Adventures of Tintin co-writer will work from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought A Zoo). A second Rust book, Secrets of the Cell, will be released by Archaia Entertainment in October.
Rust, which debuted last year, is described as “a high-octane adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time. Life on the Taylor family farm was difficult enough before Jet Jones crashes into the barn, chased by a giant decommissioned war robot! Oldest son Roman Taylor struggles to keep his family’s small farm afloat as the area heals from a devastating world war. While the rest of his family may not trust the mysterious boy with the jetpack, Roman believes the secrets of Jet’s past may be the key to their survival.”
A mix of kids, action and sci-fi? Cornish should have this one in the bag.
