The last we heard about a film adaptation of Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski's "illustrated novel," Oblivion, it was being pitched around Hollywood. Disney had an exclusive negotiating window with Koskinski that ended last night without definitive word one way or another. Koskinski also pitched Oblivion to other Hollywood studios. Paramount, Fox, and 20th-Century Fox all made bids, but Disney seemed like the likeliest buyer as of late last week based on Kosinski's directorial debut, Tron: Legacy.

Here's a brief synopsis (courtesy of
In a post-apocalyptic Earth, civilization lives above the clouds and scavengers illegally collect ancient artifacts from the polluted and destroyed surface below. But when one young scavenger discovers a crashed spacecraft planetside- and a beautiful woman within- he rejoices at the find. Little does he realize that his discovery will lead him to a journey filled with romance, adventure and unimaginable danger.
