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, Heat Vision reports.
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.” The graphic novel was published by Image earlier this year and centered around a woman who tries to collect and save lost children.
Enormous is moving to a new publisher, 21 Ink Publishing, which is expected to announce at this week’s New York Comic-Con an 18-book series to begin releasing in 2013.
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 site continues explaining that 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.
