Oblivion Song, the Image Comic book series by Robert Kirkman, has been optioned and will be developed into a feature film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, who will also serve as producer.
Oblivion Song, slated to end at the end of 2021 with issue #36 was created by Kirkman and artist Lorenzo De Felici began in 2018. The story, takes place a decade after the cataclysmic event dubbed Oblivion, where 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost, and though the government made every attempt to recover them, they eventually gave up the search, except for Nathan Cole who continues making daily trips into the hellscape to find those still lost.
Brian Oliver and Bradley Fischer of New Republic Pictures will produce alongside Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker of Nine Stories, while Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst will also produce via Skybound Entertainment.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Riva Marker of Nine Stories said about the project:
“When faced with a cataclysmic event that permanently alters our lives, what would we choose to save? Just as Kirkman did with The Walking Dead and Invincible, in Oblivion Song he’s created the potential for a franchise that is profoundly entertaining, and the perfect opportunity to explore big questions we’re reckoning with globally.”
No release date has been released but until then check out the comic series, the first 30 issues of OBLIVION SONG are available in single issue and trade format.
