Machinima Creating ENORMOUS Web Series
Last year, it was announced that director Andre Ovredal (Troll Hunter) and producer Adrian Askarieh were gearing up to make a franchise out of the Enormous, the comic book from Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour. Those plans included a web series, tv show and feature film. A year later, it appears that the first leg of those ambitious plans is kicking off as Variety reports that Machinima is moving forward with plans to make a web series from the comic. Enormous follows a futuristic setting where humanity is poised on the brink of extinction in the wake of gigantic monsters produced from a vast ecological cataclysm. That premise brings to mind another Image comic book series, The Walking Dead but this time, it's giant monsters instead of zombies. BenDavid Grabinski (Cost of Living) will direct the pilot from a script he wrote with Ovredal. Casting is underway and December is the target date for cameras to begin rolling.
The leading web entertainment content-provider Machinima is creating a web series based on Enormous, the former Image comic book series from Tim Daniel and artist Mehdi Cheggour. The series sounds like The Walking Dead but with Pacific Rim kaiju instead of zombies.
Enormous began at Image Comics in its initial run but the remaining balance of the series will be published by Fifth World Studios.
