20th Century Fox has bought the film rights for the Archaia graphic novel Rust, with Aline Brosh McKenna and Simon Kinberg attached to produce, reports Heat Vision. The title is described as follows:
“Rust” is a high-octane adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time. Life on the Taylor family farm was difficult enough before Jet Jones crashes into the barn, chased by a giant decommissioned war robot! Oldest son Roman Taylor struggles to keep his family’s small farm afloat as the area heals from a devastating world war. While the rest of his family may not trust the mysterious boy with the jetpack, Roman believes the secrets of Jet’s past may be the key to their survival.
Kinberg’s credits include X-Men: First Class and the upcoming This Means War, while McKenna wrote The Devil Wears Prada and the upcoming We Bought a Zoo.
