Given his success with his film Trollhunter, director Andre Ovredal proved that when it comes to handling projects with Enormous scopes, he is the man for the job. The good news? There are more giant monsters stomping our way!
According to THR producer Adrian Askarieh and Andre Ovredal, the Norwegian director of Trollhunter, are teaming up to tackle a transmedia adaptation of Enormous, a monster apocalyptic comic published by Image.
Created and written by Tim Daniel and drawn by Mehdi Cheggour, Enormous tells of how humanity is plunged down the food chain when an ecological event creates gargantuan beasts that decimate civilization. In a perfect world I tell ya! The graphic novel was published by Image earlier this year and centered around a woman who tries to collect and save lost children.
Askarieh and Ovredal plan on creating a high-end digital Web series, a TV show and a feature film in a bid to tell the enormous Enormous story and explore how humans react and cope with survival from multiple points of views and from multiple settings around the planet.
The duo are hoping to create something in tone of Cloverfield and The Walking Dead, focusing on strong characters and complicated relationships with the monsters as the background. Ovredal will direct the productions, while Askarieh produces via his Prime Universe banner. Prime Universe’s Scott Kinney will serve as co-producer on all projects.
