Enormous

Director André Øvredal’s Norwegian found footage horror movie, Trollhunter, was a lot more fun that most found footage horror movies, because it didn’t spend any time trying to convince you that what you were watching was real, it instead put all of its efforts toward making a dumb, fun troll movie with the best looking trolls that their modest budget could afford. So, on that level, it was a huge success, because Trollhunter is a big, dumb movie that’s a lot of fun to watch and all of the big, dumb trolls in it look pretty great. Which makes Øvredal a prime candidate to helm a live action adaptation of Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour’s comic book “Enormous.” Originally published by Image Comics, “Enormous” is set in a world where humanity is being overrun by gigantic beasts who are wrecking our cities and eating our children. It’s kind of like Godzilla if Godzilla brought friends. According to THR, producer Adrian Askarieh is looking to take a Cloverfield-like approach to adapting the material, wherein the people being stepped on will get more of the focus than the monsters doing the stepping. That’s not the whole story when it comes to what he has planned, however.
