Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures said Tuesday they developing Oblivion Song, a movie based on Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici’s sci-fi comic book series. Sean O’Keefe, who penned the upcoming Peter Berg-Mark Wahlberg pic Wonderland, will write the script.

Oblivion Song, published by Skybound and Image Comics, is written by The Walking Dead creator Kirkman and illustrated by De Felici. It takes place a decade after 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them but after many years they gave up. Nathan Cole won’t. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those lost, alone and afraid, living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe… Nathan is looking for something else. Why can’t he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

Skybound’s film team including Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst are producers. Universal EVP Production Jon Mone and director of development Lexi Barta will oversee for the studio.

O’Keefe, who also sold the first script based on the Robert E. Parker Spenser book series to Netflix, is repped by ICM Partners, Symbonic and Goodman Schenkman & Brecheen.
