Last year, Jesus Orellana unleashed a post-apocalyptic sci-fi short on the festival world and it exploded into a global phenomenon. Initially, Orellana made the short with the intentions of creating a feature film, and now it looks like that will happen and then some.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will Dunn has been attached to write Rosa for the big-screen via 20th Century Fox with Orellana returning to direct.
Simon Kinberg, Raymond Brothers and Scott Glassgold of IAM Entertainment will be producing the upcoming feature.
Rosa has been described as “an epic sci-fi short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a cyborg deployed from the Kernel project, mankind’s last attempt to restore the earth’s ecosystem. Rosa will soon learn that she is not the only entity that has awakened and must fight for her survival.”
