Joe Cornish Set For Rust

Since launching himself on the moviemaking scene with all the impact of a massive wrestler landing on an opponent, Attack The Block writer-director Joe Cornish has begun snapping up prime projects dangled by the studios. He’s attached to make a cinematic version of Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash and is now on board 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of graphic novel Rust.

Created by Roydon Lepp, Rust takes place on a planet that saw years of horrific war eventually ended by the creation and deployment of robot soldiers. Since then, peace has reigned, but for one farming family, things are about to get very dangerous once again when a strange, jetpack-wearing boy shows up, pursued by a lumbering mech, and a battle kicks off…

Fox picked up the rights to Lepp’s tale last July and set The Devil Wears Prada / We Bought A Zoo’s Aline Brosh McKenna to write the script. While she’s still on board as a producer, we’d expect Cornish to take a pass on the script himself, or find another writer to tinker with it.

Right now, it’s early days for his involvement, so there’s no word yet on whether he’s aiming to make this his next movie, or if he’ll focus on Snow Crash. We’re just glad he’s in demand.
