Graphic Novel “Enormous” Will Get Cross-Platform Adaptation

The graphic novel Enormous has garnered rave reviews and its headed to multiple platforms near year.

The series tells  how humanity is plunged down the food chain when an ecological event creates gargantuan beasts that decimate civilization.

Producer Adrian Askariehand Andre Ovredal, the Norwegian director of Trollhunter, are teaming up to tackle a transmedia adaptation of Enormous.

The graphic novel was published by Image earlier this year and centered around a woman who tries to collect and save lost children.

Enormous is moving to a new publisher, 21 Ink Publishing, which is expected to announce at this week’s New York Comic-Con an 18-book series to begin releasing in 2013.

Askarieh and Ovredal plan on creating a high-end digital Web series, a TV show and a feature film in a bid to tell the enormous Enormous story and explore how humans react and cope with survival from multiple points of views and from multiple settings around the planet.

The duo are hoping to create something in tone of Cloverfield and The Walking Dead, focusing on strong characters and complicated relationships with the monsters as the background.

Ovredal will direct the productions, while Askarieh produces via his Prime Universe banner
