The comic Enormous, by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour, has already been adapted to a new medium once, as Machinima financed a web series pilot written by André Øvredal (Trollhunter) and directed by BenDavid Grabinski (Cost of Living). But with Machinima’s changing fortunes that series didn’t go far, and now producer Adrian Askarieh has teamed with New Regency Television and 20th Century Fox Television to develop an Enormous event series.
Deadline reports that the producers are looking for a showrunner now, after which a pilot script, cast and director will start to fall into place. So it’ll probably be 2016 at least before we see anything from this effort.
The story, as the official site says, goes like this:
Enormous tells the full tale of the aftermath of a vast ecological cataclysm which spawns colossal beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind stares down imminent extinction and the only law is to hunt or be hunted. It’s survival of the biggest as the earth-shaking sci-fi action adventure continues. As the last vestige of humankind spirals towards annihilation, Ellen Grace leads the only remaining North American Search & Recovery Team through the deadly giant monster infested streets of Phoenix. However, she soon encounters another predator far more dangerous than the other-worldly creatures stalking the desolate city: her fellow humans.
Here’s the Enormous web series pilot, which originally appeared just under a year ago, in March 2014.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
