Fox to Develop Series Adaptation Of Graphic Novel Enormous
Not to be outdone by Netflix/Marvel titles being adapted, Fox is seeking to expand its own comic book interests beyond Gotham, and into the realms of Enormous.
While filmmakers have been tinkering with the original graphic novel and comic book series for several years, it seems that producer Adrian Askarieh (Hitman) has finally got the project underway.
“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 and 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.”
Created by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour, Enormous first appeared as a one-off graphic novel in 2012, and returned as a comic series in 2014 to great commercial success.
