We round up the geek movie news from recent days, with news on upcoming films, a release of a 40-year-old classic, and how AT&T will market Warner Bros. films.

Skybound Entertainment and Universal Pictures are developing a film based on the Robert Kirkman – Lorenzo De Felici comic series Oblivion Song, the companies announced today.  A script will be written by Sean O’Keefe, who wrote a screenplay for The Green Hornet in development (see “’The Green Hornet’ Set for Movie Reboot”), and wrote Wonderland, a Mark Wahlberg feature adapting a Robert E. Parker book series, which recently finished shooting for Netflix. Kirkman walked with ICv2 about Oblivion Song earlier this year (see “ICv2 Interview: Robert Kirkman Part 1”).

Legendary Entertainment’s plans for films and television based on Jeff Lemire’s Black Hammer universe, originally announced last fall (see “Legendary Envisions Multiple Adaptations for Lemire’s ‘Black Hammer’”), include a shared universe between the film and TV projects, Lemire revealed to ComicBook.com.  Lemire is currently writing an initial screenplay.
