Nowadays, studios are willing to grab the rights to stuff that hasn't even hit shelves yet. One example is the recent acquisition of the rights to the upcoming AfterShock Comics’ graphic novel The Kaiju Score while hails from writer James Patrick and artist Rem Broo.
Described as “a Quentin Tarantino film taking place in some corner of a Godzilla movie", the story follows the most dangerous heist ever attempted. Why? Four desperate criminals are going all-in on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to steal millions in art and turn their miserable lives around...but they have to pull it off under the nose of a one thousand-ton kaiju. And that's just the start of their problems.
Sony will produce the project alongside Escape Artits and AfterShock themselves. Tony Shaw, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch, Lee Kramer, and Jon Kramer will serve as producers on the film. Stay tuned!
