Variety reports that Jake Gyllenhaal has signed on to star in Universal Pictures’ adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic Oblivion Song. Though not confirmed, he’s expected to be playing Nathan Cole, a scientist exploring why 300,000 people disappeared from Philadelphia into another dimension called Oblivion. The comic series recently released its 33rd issue and will end with the 36th. This represents the first major news since the project was first announced two years ago.
