20th Century Fox is set to team “The Maze Runner” film series director Wes Ball with its newest acquisition – an adaptation of the crowdfunded illustrated fantasy book “Fall of Gods” crafted by Denmark-based Mood Studios.
Mood’s concept designer Rasmus Berggreen and “Hitman” video game series scribe Michael Vogt teamed for the project which explores Norse mythology and retains a more Scandinavian feel to it than something like the “Thor” films.
Set in a realm populated by both humans and the Jotnar, the story follows a warrior named Vali who found peace in the arms of a woman. When she disappears, he must the creatures of Jotunheim and the powerful Aesir as he finds the man he thought he had buried deep down inside him is returning.
Ball, Steve Tzirlin, Joe Hartwick Jr. and Brooklyn Weaver are producing.
