We told you a few days ago about an upcoming adaptation of the Tim Daniel comic property Enormous with Trollhunter‘s André Øvredal attached in some capacity, and now we have a much clearer picture of the monstrous goings-on!
Variety reports that online entertainment player Machinima, whose audience is made up mostly of young males age 18-35, has paired with producer Adrian Askarieh to produce a 10-minute pilot based on Enormous, a graphic novel that revolves around a cataclysmic ecological event that creates massive beasts that overrun human civilization and puts mankind at the bottom of the food chain.
Askarieh’s Prime Universe Productions will produce the pilot for Machinima before turning it into a full-fledged series that can play on various digital platforms the company appears on, including the new Xbox One.
BenDavid Grabinski, who helmed the short Cost of Living, will direct the pilot whose concept is a blend of Cloverfield and The Walking Dead. Grabinski penned the script with Øvredal.
The project is in the midst of being cast, with a December shoot in L.A. being eyed.
In the midst of a planetary battle for food and fuel, a vast ecological cataclysm spawns “the enormous,” massive beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind struggles to stave off extinction.
