Rust

After making a big splash with Attack the Block last year, director Joe Cornish is still figuring out his follow-up project. Just recently the director was attached to direct an adaptation of Snow Crash, but there hasn't been a timetable set up for that project just yet. Now another adaptation is in the director's lap as Deadline has learned Fox has tapped Cornish to adapt Rust: Visitor in the Field, a sci-fi graphic novel that has flares of an E.T. The Extra Terrestrial type story about an out space resident named Jet Jones who is being chased by a big decommissioned war robot and crashes into the barn of a farming family on Earth.

Set after a devastating world war, the farm is struggling, but Jet Jones might hold they key to helping them survive. This sounds like the perfect film for Cornish who had a great cast of kids getting involved with some deadly alien creatures in Attack the Block. This one sounds like it will a little more lighthearted and charming though, likely for the whole family. Aline Brosh McKenna is adapting Royden Lepp's graphic novel of the same name, and with Cornish on board, the project is now a high priority for Fox, so it might even get off the ground before Snow Crash. Sound good?
