'Trollhunter' Director to Take on 'Enormous'


Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour's comic Enormous is getting the big screen treatment.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trollhunter director Andre Ovredal and Hitman producer Adrian Askarieh will team up to adapt the the apocalyptic monster comic.

“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,” The Hollywood Reporter said.

The graphic novel is moving from Image to 21 Ink Publishing, which is expected to release an 18-book series in 2013.
