It looks like the Image Comics’ Skyward film adaptation has attracted a director to the project in the form of Rampage‘s Brad Peyton.

Skyward is based on the prolific Image Comics comic book series, and is set in a world where Earth’s gravity suddenly (and dramatically) drops to near zero. The protagonist Willa Fowler, born the day after G-Day – the day it all changed – is now twenty plus and lives in this gravity-free world. Things start going amuch though when she finds out her dad has been secretly working to restore the Earth’s gravity.

Henderson, the co-creator of Skyward and also the guy responsible for adapting the comic for film, spoke on the intricacies that Skyward will have to pull off torepresent a world with near-zero gravity:

Sony Pictures, the company set to produce the film, has not released any news on production or cinematic release dates.
