'Trollhunter' Team Adapting Apocalyptic Monster Comic 'Enormous'
After bringing to life a rare dramatic faux documentary in the form of Trollhunter, director Andre Ovredal is teaming with Hitman producer Adrian Askarieh for something bigger. Heat Vision has word that the duo will next take on an adaptation of Enormous, an apocalyptic monster comic book from Tim Daniel. But rather than only bringing the comic to the big screen, they will also develop a high-end web series, TV series and feature film to cover all the mythology in the comic which follows humanity's struggle to survive after an ecological event creates gargantuan beasts that decimate civilization all around the world. Read on!
The plan is to create something in the same vein as Cloverfield and "The Walking Dead" by following several different humans and how they react and deal with these monsters. It won't be just a special effects extravaganza as they plan on having strong characters with complicated relationships with the monsters takeover serving as a back drop. That sounds a bit more like the film Monsters to me. Ovredal is the perfect man to realize that kind of story as Trollhunter covered similar ground following a student film crew that filming a government employee working for a secret troll management department. Stay tuned for more.

Any thing with giant monsters is win in my book.

I'm still waiting for an adaptation of Shadows of the Colossus.

it certainly was. entertaining, funny but played straight, occasionally dark and infused with pathos. i'd gladly see anything else from the director. although the producer doesn't fill me with confidence, Askarieh + colossal monsters = watch.
