Sony Pictures has acquired the film rights to AfterShock Comics’ new title “The Kaiju Score” with plans to adapt it into a feature film to be co-produced with Escape Artists.
The story follows the most dangerous heist ever attempted where 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.
The catch? They have to pull it off under the nose of a one thousand-ton kaiju. And a giant monster might just be the least of their problems.
Writer James Patrick (“Death Comes to Dillinger,” “The Monsters of Jimmy Crumb”) and artist Rem Broo (“The End Times of Bram and Ben”) created the comic while Tony Shaw, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch, Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer will produce the film.
