Posted September 25, 2018 07:17:59The movie industry’s biggest blockbuster has finally come to life, as Monster Trucks is being adapted into a new movie.
The film is directed by Chris McKay and stars Liam Neeson, Josh Gad, Olivia Wilde and John Travolta.
Director Chris McKay’s Monster Truers is being developed by The Wolf Films, a subsidiary of Legendary Pictures, who have produced such blockbusters as Warcraft, Transformers and the forthcoming Warcraft 5.
“I’m really excited about the project, I’m really looking forward to seeing it,” McKay told ABC News.
“We’re going to bring to the screen the greatest, most ambitious, most entertaining monster truck film in film history, and I’m looking forward seeing how it turns out.”
The film was first released in 2017 with an original screenplay by McKay, and will feature a host of Hollywood names.
The movie is set in the 1970s and stars Josh Gad and Olivia Wilde.
The story of a trucking company called The Wolf, which has been driven to the brink of bankruptcy by the onset of the Great Depression, is set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and the arrival of the “monster trucks”, an unstoppable army of monsters that roam the country.
The trucking industry was a huge part of the movie’s success.
“Monster Trucks tells the story of the trucking companies struggle to survive in the post-war world,” Universal Pictures president David Fincher said in a statement.
“This is a unique opportunity to capture the story in a unique way and to give the world a rare glimpse into the world of trucking.”
The project is being produced by Legendary Pictures and is headed by Oscar-winning writer-director Chris McKay.
“It’s a rare opportunity for an independent film studio to get involved in this genre, especially in the US,” McKay said.
“But we have some very special people behind us in the Wolf and Legendary.
We’re very excited to get to work.”
The movie will be directed by director Chris McKay, who also wrote the script.
He is currently filming The Wolf’s latest film, The Hunt for Red October, with Emma Stone and Robert De Niro.
“Chris has a unique voice and style, and he’s very passionate about the genre of monster movie, so it’s going in a very interesting direction,” Legendary Pictures president Gary Ross said in an interview with ABC News in 2017.
“The Wolf” was first announced as a movie in 2019.
It’s being produced with Legendary Pictures’ international head of production, Andrew Goldstein, and Universal Pictures’ president of production Chris McKay; and is being helmed by Legendary’s James Wan, who co-wrote the screenplay with McKay.
The Wolf is currently shooting in Vancouver and will have a UK release date of 2019.ABC NewsTopics:film,movies,horror,advertising,world-war-2,film-movies-from-around-the-world,uk,united-states
