I KILL GIANTS First Look Reveals Madison Wolfe And Zoe Saldana

It's very rare to hear about Western-produced manga, let alone see one adapted into a feature-length, live-action movie. But that's exactly what's happening to Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura's I Kill Giants.

Via the Cannes Film Festival and The Hollywood Reporter, here's your first look at the I Kill Giants live-action film from Umedia, Ingenious and XYZ films.  The trio are hoping to sell the film to a big-studio distributor after screening it during the film festival.  The adaptation of the International Manga Award winning graphic novel/manga stars Madison Wolfe (Joy, The Conjuring 2), Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) and Imogen Poots (Need for Speed, Knight of Cups).  Wolfe portrays the lead, Barbara, while Saldana play her school counselor.  

 Danish director Anders Walter tackled the project, while series scribe Joe Kelly (Man of Action) wrote the screenplay.
