Novelist Eric S. Brown announced that Origin Releasing has acquired the motion picture rights to his “Bigfoot War” book series. The series, which started in 2010 with a novella simply titled “Bigfoot War,” has now grown to seven installments that include rampaging bigfoots, zombies, and even bigfoot zombies!
As a fan of the series (read my original review here), I’ve always thought this is the kind of material that just begs to be made into a movie. The question is, can they can translate Brown’s masterful monster mayhem to the screen? If they can, it’s gonna be one hell of a ride!
Casting has already begun and production is slated to start in late July for a planned 2014 release. A director has yet to be named.
The series rundown:
- Bigfoot War
- Bigfoot War 2: Dead in the Woods
- Bigfoot War 3: Food Chain
- Bigfoot War 4: Legion
- Bigfoot War: Frontier
- Bigfoot War: Outbreak
- Bigfoot War: The End
