Sony Pictures has acquired feature film rights to Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen's upcoming comic book series "Descender" says Heat Vision.
Described as a space opera full of mystery and adventure, the story
follows a lifelike artificial boy named TIM-21 who, along with his
rag-tag group of unlikely companions, is looking for home. The trouble is, he holds the secrets deep in his machine DNA to the
origin of robots that have decimated entire planets - making him the
most-wanted robot in the universe.
Josh Bratman will produce the pic while Lemire and Nguyen are attached to executive produce.
