Jesus Orellana's ROSA To Be Adapated By Fox For A Live-Action Big Screen Feature

Remember that "ultra cool post-apocalyptic" short from Spanish comic book artist Jesus Orellana I shared back in November? Well, it's officially being given a live-action adaption for the big screen by Fox.

The short debuted online in early November following rave reviews at various film festivals and Jesus Orellana quickly found himself one of the most highly sought after commodities in Tinseltown. By the end of November, Orellana was signed to Verve and just last week, was giving pitches to all the big studios .

The thing to remember is that Orellana made the entire short on his home computer, after teaching himself the animation software and with virtually no budget. It was made to showcase his vision for a live-action movie and it appears that this Cinderella story will indeed have the happy ending that Orellana desired.

Reports THR, "Fox-based Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films banner will produce with Scott Glassgold and Raymond Brothers of I Am Entertainment, which also reps Orellan. A scribe will be hired to write the script, which will build on the storyline and the characters of the short. Orellana had a roadmap for the feature story as part of his pitch presentation."

And in case you missed it the first time, here's the original short.
