Imogen Poots Joins Zoe Saldana in I Kill Giants Movie
According to Variety, Imogen Poots (“Roadies,” Green Room) is set to join Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar) in the cast of the upcoming I Kill Giants movie, which adapts Joe Kelly’s critically-acclaimed graphic novel. Madison Wolfe (“True Detective,” Joy) will play the lead young girl in the film, which begins shooting on September 27 in Ireland and Belgium.
The I Kill Giants movie tells the story of a young misfit girl named Barbara (Wolfe) battling both real and imaginary monsters in her life. Joe Kelly, who wrote the award-winning graphic novel he created with illustrator Ken Niimura, has also written the screenplay adaptation.
Saldana will play school psychologist Mrs. Mollé, who plays a key role by helping Barbara face both internal and external threats, forming an inspiring bond with her in the process.
Anders Walter is making his feature-length directorial debut with the I Kill Giants movie, which has Academy Award nominee Chris Columbus producing through his 1492 Pictures/Ocean Blue Entertainment alongside Justin Nappi (through his company, Treehouse Pictures), Kim Magnusson (through Man of Action Entertainment, where Kelly is a partner) and XYZ Films. Treehouse Pictures is also financing the film.
