EXCLUSIVE: Brian and Mark Gunn are set to adapt the screenplay for Sony Pictures and Escape Artists’ The Kaiju Score based on the AfterShock Comics’ series by James Patrick and artist Rem Broo.
The feature plot is being kept under wraps. In the comic book series, The Kaiju Score follows four characters who are attempting a dangerous heist during a giant monster (kaiju) attack. Patrick has described the comic as “a Quentin Tarantino film taking place in some corner of a Godzilla movie.”
Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, and Steve Tisch are producing, along with Tony Shaw who initially brought the property into Sony. AfterShock Media’s Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer will also produce.
