Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the rights Royden Lepp’s upcoming all-ages graphic novel Rust, Deadline reports. The Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna will pen the script.
Set to be published in September by Archaia Entertainment, Rust 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.”
Archaia’s Stephen Christy will produce the adaptation with Fox’s Archaia’s Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).
