Characters and concepts involved first appeared in Oblivion Song #1
Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures said Tuesday they are developing Oblivion Song, a movie based on Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici’s sci-fi comic book series. Sean O’Keefe, who penned the upcoming Peter Berg-Mark Wahlberg pic Wonderland, will write the script.
Published by Skybound and Image Comics, Oblivion Song premiered at a monthly series in March 2018 that was written by The Walking Dead creator Kirkman and illustrated by De Felici. The story takes place one decade after 300,000 residents of Philadelphia suddenly were trapped in Oblivion. Frantic recovery efforts were launched by the government, but, after a few futile years, they were abandoned. Nathan Cole, however, hasn’t given up. He risks his life again and again trying to save those lost souls in Oblivion’s apocalyptic hellscape – but is that the real reason he can’t resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?
