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. 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.
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.
They are going for a The Walking Dead and Cloverfield feel. They want it to really be about the people and how they cope under extreme circumstances. 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.
