    'Tron' director takes Disney to 'Oblivion'

    “Oblivion,” the upcoming Radical graphic novel from “Tron Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski (pictured), has found a home with Disney.

    The sci-fi project will act as a Kosinski directing vehicle and will be produced by Radical principal Barry Levine and Kosinski. Radical's Jesse Berger will act as executive producer.

    Kosinski partnered with Radical on the project in July 2009, although it was not set up at a studio. He spent the last year honing the story while putting the finishing touches on “Tron,” which is shaping up to be one of the most important movies for Disney in quite a while.

    The story is set on a future Earth, where civilization lives above the clouds and scavengers collect ancient artifacts from the polluted surface below. When one young scavenger finds a crashed spacecraft planetside, it lead him on a journey filled with romance and adventure.

    It was Kosinski’s relationship with Disney production topper Sean Bailey, who was a producer on ”Tron” before becoming president of production at the studio, that helped cement the deal, which is in the seven figures and is said to be one the largest rights deals of the year.

    Other studios were interested in the property and Bailey wanted to keep Kosinski in the Disney fold. The filmmaker, repped by Verve and Anonymous Content, is developing a remake of “Black Hole,” whose latest draft is getting high marks inside the studio.

    Looks to be interesting(as for the Black Hole Remake, I hope they do a better storyline.)
