Will Dunn set to write ‘Rosa’ for Fox

'Ion' scribe to adapt short for studio

Will Dunn, who is a member of 20th Century Fox’s writing program, is set to write a live-action feature adaptation of Jesus Orellana’s acclaimed animated short “Rosa” for the studio.

Fox-based Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films banner will produce with Scott Glassgold and Raymond Brothers of IAM Entertainment, which also reps Orellan along with Verve.

Studio acquired the sci-fi short late last year from Orellana, a Spanish comic book artist who will direct the feature.

The low-budget short, which circulated online in November, was made on Orellan’s home computer in Barcelona. Story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared. A cyborg named Rosa rises from the destruction with the goal of restoring the planet’s ecosystem, though protag must fight for her survival upon learning she’s not the only entity that has awakened.

Dunn previously wrote “Ion” for Fox 2000, Scott Free and producer Channing Tatum. That pic follows a man who travels to other planets and dimensions in search of his reincarnated lover. Scribe is repped by WME and the Safran Co.
