Jake Gyllenhaal is all set to star in `Oblivion Song`, an adaptation of Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici`s graphic novel.
Released by Image Comics in 2018, `Oblivion Song` chronicles Nathan Cole, a man who makes daily trips to try and rescue those still living in `Oblivion`, an apocalyptic hellscape in Philadelphia that was lost a decade prior, along with 300,000 of its citizens.
New Republic Pictures announced on Tuesday it had optioned the rights to the story, with plans to turn it into a feature film as published in Variety.
Jake`s production company Nine Stories will produce the film with Riva Marker and Kirkman via his Skybound Entertainment.
Kirkman is best known for co-creating `The Walking Dead` and `Invincible`, in addition to writing Marvel Comics such as `Ultimate X-Men` and `Irredeemable Ant-Man`.
Jake will next star in Michael Bay`s action thriller `Ambulance` for Universal, as well as Antoine Fuqua`s `The Guilty` for Netflix.
