Sony Hires Writer For ‘Descender’

Sony snapped up the film rights to Image Comics’ “Descender” about a year ago. According to THR, the studio has now set writer Jesse Wigutow to pen the script for their live action film adaptation.  Wigutow previously scripted It Runs In The Family (2003) and The Prince (2006).  He is also the current writer on board Disney’s still-in-development Tron 3.

Created by Jeff Lemire & Dustin Nguyen (“Trillium“, “Sweet Tooth“, “Little Gotham“), the source material revolves around “One young robot’s struggle to stay alive in a universe where all androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet. A rip-roaring and heart-felt cosmic odyssey that pits humanity against machine, and world against world, to create a sprawling space opera”.  That’s a bit vague, but intriguing enough to track down the existing collected volume of issues.  Besides, I’m always down for more space opera action.
