Cast in Place for Machinima's Enormous Adaptation
As we told you last month, Machinima is working on an adaptation of the Tim Daniel comic property Enormous, looking to turn into a live-action web series. But first, they're setting their sights on shooting the pilot episode, which has just found its cast. Read on for the Enormous details!
THR reports that Ceren Lee, Erica Gimpel, and Steve Brand have all just joined the cast of the pilot, which enters production today in Los Angeles. They join Garret Coffey, Billy Miller, and Charles Melton in the story set in a world where humanity is under attack from gigantic monsters.
Lee will play the lead, a woman who works for the United Nation's Search and Rescue division looking for abandoned children. Gimpel's character protects Lee's rescuer, while Brand is the story's antagonist, a soldier of fortune making a living in this post-apocalyptic world.
Adrian 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 Andre Øvredal (Trollhunter).
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.
