August 5th, 2010, Los Angeles, CA – Radical Publishing is proud to announce that Disney has acquired the film adaptation of OBLIVION, based on Radical Publishing’s illustrated novel created by Tron: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, written by Rex Mundi creator, Arvid Nelson, and with illustrations by Andrée Wallin. OBLIVION will be directed by Joseph Kosinki and will be produced by Radical’s President and Publisher, Barry Levine, and Kosinski. Radical Studios’ Executive Vice President Jesse Berger is signed on as Executive Producer. Kosinki is repped by Verve and Anonymous Content while Radical is repped by CAA and David Schiff.

In a future where the Earth’s surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Joe Kosinski on OBLIVION,” said Barry Levine, president of Radical Pictures. “Joe is one of the most creative forces in filmmaking today. From the moment he teamed with Radical to produce the book and film, he had such a clear vision of the OBLIVION landscape and universe. Add to that Joe’s successful partnership with Disney on Tron: Legacy, and you have all the ingredients for a phenomenal action/adventure film.”

OBLIVION, the 128-page illustrated novel, will be released in Summer 2011 and will feature prose, combined with over 40 fully painted landscape renderings. OBLIVION will be distributed worldwide through Random House.

The film's cast, including Michael Cera (Scott), will reprise their roles for the short animation.

The cartoon will be broadcast during commercial breaks of [adult swim]'s original programming roughly near midnight on the 12th, and will them be posted in full on the [adult swim] website and on Facebook.

Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead will terrorize TV viewers this fall on AMC. 

Mainstream excitement continues to build as the fall premiere of the six-episode series draws closer, and Image & AMC have orchestrated a major campaign to bolster awareness of the comic and the retailers who carry it.

Additionally, ads for the show are already appearing in Image comics, and the Walking Dead Panel, the Walking Dead portion of Image’s booth, and the interactive booth featuring the Walking Dead TV set were all immensely popular at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego. The show’s SDCC presence and other marketing efforts have already caught the attention of major media outlets, including USA Today, New York Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, MTV’s Splash Page, the Los Angeles Times, and more.
