"The Departed" Writer to Pen "Oblivion" Sci-Fi Movie

Walt Disney Pictures has hired William Monahan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Departed," to pen a big screen version of the futuristic adventure graphic novel "Oblivion."

Plot: In a future where the Earth's surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.



The new movie will be the next project for "Tron: Legacy" helmer Joseph Kosinski, who has spent the last year working on the story while putting the finishing touches on "Tron."
