Wes Ball To Direct Kickstarter-Funded Novel, FALL OF GODS

Director Wes Ball is leaving quite the impression these past few years with his main focus tentatively on the on-going Maze Runner saga as the second film, The Scorch Trials, gears up for its release next month. As such, Fox is determined to have him in the director's chair once more, it seems, in lieu of plans to adapt Norse epic, Fall Of Gods.

Fox has acquired the rights to the Danish-published graphic novel initially conceived at MOOD Studios on Denmark by way of crowdfunding via Kickstarter. MOOD Studios's own Rasmus Berggreen originally spearheaded the project along with Hitman videogame scribe Michael Vogt to help put what THR describes as a "Scandinavian stamp on Norse mythology" for the book's vast and multilayered universe.
For years he has lived far from society, tending to his farm and trying to forget the battles he fought…and the crimes he committed. But one day his love disappears, and he must set out to find her. He will once again have to face the creatures of Jotunheim and the powerful Aesir. Suddenly, the man he thought he had buried deep down inside has risen to the surface once more...and he comes seeking vengeance.
Ball is tapped to direct as well as produce the film, thus aiming to prove once more just how resourceful books can be with the aim of building big-scale cinematic visions around them. As such, he'll be joined by producers Joe Hartwick Jr. and Brooklyn Weaver, as well as Steve Tzirlin also served in script and story developement on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Stay tuned for more info!
