20th Century Fox TV and New Regency are looking to bring the giant monster comic “Enormous” to the small screen in a big way.
Deadline has the news that the production companies have optioned the 215Ink comic by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour with an eye towards making the story of an earth beset by giant monsters into a TV event mini series. Andrew Poltkin of New Regency TV and Prime Universe’s Adrian Askarieh will be executive producers, though no creative talent has been hired yet.
First released as an Image Comics one-shot in 2012, “Enormous” expanded into an ongoing series last year. At the time, Daniel explained the evolution of the project in a CBR interview, saying, ” there was an immediate interest in adapting the book for the screen, so it seemed natural to us both that if we got the chance, we should return to the story and tell it as it was conceived. We took it to 215Ink, revealing the full scope of the book and those wonderful folks were immediately on board, giving us a new lease on life and a rare second chance with our readers.”
The series was previously adapted into an experimental web series for Machinima director BenDavid Grabinski.
