Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish Has a New Alien Movie
Looks like it didn’t take Twentieth Century Fox very long to get their hooks into Joe Cornish, the director of last year’s breakthrough sci-fi hit “Attack the Block”, the film that proves when it comes to fighting an alien invasion, kids are just naturally better at it. Fox has found something else for Cornish to direct, and it’s also about aliens on Earth. Except we’re expecting this alien will be a little friendlier.
Cornish has been tapped to direct “Rust”. The movie will be based on a script by Aline Brosh McKenna, who adapted the graphic novel of the same name by Royden Lepp.
Here’s how Amazon describes it:
Rust is 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.
Wow, kinda sounds like Astro Boy. Or the Rocketeer.
There are apparently two books in the series so far.
