Joe Cornish To Direct Big Screen Adaptation of Graphic Novel ‘Rust’

Archaia Entertainment

In news that will surely rock the very foundation of Tinseltown, a writer/director/producer type is going to make a big screen movie based off of a property from something called a “graphic novel.”

Joe Cornish, who directed that horror movie about British toughs fighting alien dogs called ‘Attack the Block,’ will direct a big screen version of ‘Rust,’ based on a “graphic novel” of the same name. Though the term “graphic novel” may be new to Hollywood, after doing some research, we discovered that these “graphic novels” are actually a bunch of regular comic books crammed together to form a regular looking book, and that nerdy type people actually purchase and read them. These books also contain colored drawings and text bubbles that tell the reader a fantastic story of aliens or other worlds or people with extraordinary abilities, like being able to punch things really hard with their fists.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Rust’ is “an adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time.” which tells us absolutely nothing about the property. And there’s no way we’re gonna go out and research it, especially since we’re too busy covering big events like Comic-Con.

Cornish will direct for 20th Century Fox from a script by Aline Brosh McKenna. We’ll keep you updated on the progress of this radical new shift in Hollywood thinking when it comes to making big screen adaptations. What’s next? Video games? Pssh. Ridiculous.
