RLJE Films has acquired the U.S. rights to the fantasy-drama I Kill Giants, starring Zoe Saldana, Madison Wolfe, and Imogen Poots, for a 2018 release.
I Kill Giants, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, is based on the 2008 graphic novel by Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura. Anders Walter directed from a screenplay by Kelly.
Wolfe portrays a teenage girl who chooses to escape the realities of school and a drab family life by retreating into her magical world of titans and giants. With the help of her new friend Sophia (Sydney Wade) and her school therapist (Saldana), Barbara will learn to battle her giants and face her fears – tackling the bullies at school, her sister (Poots), and her difficult home life.
Saldana was last seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and will appear next in Avengers: Infinity War. She is filming James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. As for Wolfe, she starred in The Conjuring 2.
