Last week it was reported that commercial director turned Tron Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski was going to be pitching his new feature film project Oblivion around town. In our original report, we wrote that Kosinski would be pitching the project to Disney on Monday night, and if the Mouse House doesn’t bite, he’ll be taking it around to other movie studios this week. I speculated that a sale will probably happen quick, and that I expected Disney to bite (its better to keep this upcoming director in the family).
Deadline is now reporting that Disney has the “inside track” on the project, and has an exclusive negotiating window than ends tonight. Three other studio: Paramount, Fox, and Universal Pictures, made bids last week. But it sounds like Disney is interested and is likely to win the project.
