Not to be left out of the original content game that Netflix and Amazon have dove head first into, popular web streaming creators Machinima have joined forced with Image Comics to bring ‘Enormous’ to the small screen. That is, any small screen that can access their streaming services.
The series will be directed by BenDavid Grabinski (‘Cost of Living’). The show itself will revolve around a post apocalyptic world with giant monsters. Clearly ‘Pacific Rim‘ has shown that there is still an audience for giant monster films as well as our collective excitement for the upcoming ‘Godzilla‘ movie. So I won’t lie, even if this wasn’t a comic adaption, which I always tend to check out anyway, I like the sound of this series! Thankfully Machinima has a Roku channel too so I’ll be able to watch this one.
What’s more, ‘Enormous’ has just expanded its cast by adding 6 actors to its lineup! The six include Ceren Lee, Erica Gimpel (‘True Blood’,’Veronica Mars’), Steve Brand, Garret Coffey, Billy Miller and Charles Melton. Will these six end up being the main six characters from the comics or will one of the announced cast be a new or different character?
While we don’t know who everyone will be playing, we do know who will portray three of the characters. Lee will play the lead role on the series and is a women who works for the United Nation’s Search and Rescue division looking for abandoned children. Gimpel’s character has the job of protecting Lee’s and Brand is a soldier of fortune making a living in this post-apocalyptic world.
As there are six main roles from the initial comic to fill, I strongly suspect the actors above will be portraying the characters displayed below:
In the midst of a planetary collapse, a vast ecological cataclysm spawns THE ENORMOUS, massive beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind struggles to stave off extinction and the only law is to hunt or be hunted!
What are your thoughts on this take as an ongoing series? Can you not get enough of big monsters and want to see more? A fan (or not) of the announced streaming format? Sound off below!
