Chris Columbus Producing ‘I Kill Giants’; Natasha Lyonne Toplines ‘Antibirth’

The graphic novel I Kill Giants is coming to the big screen, with Chris Columbus producing. Anders Walter, who won an Oscar last year for the live-action short Helium, will make his feature directing debut, and Joe Kelly — who penned the graphic novel about a young misfit girl battling real and imagined monsters in her life — is aboard to write the screenplay. Treehouse Pictures is financing the pic and will produce with Columbus via his 1492 Pictures/Ocean Blue Entertainment, along with Man of Action Entertainment and XYZ Films, which is handling worldwide sales. Casting is underway for a targeted production start this year.

Natasha Lyonne is set to star in Antibirth, an indie horror pic from writer-director Danny Perez. She will play Lou, an anti-heroine struggling with a strange illness, paranoia and fragmented visions who embarks on an insane journey to regain control of her life. Chloe Sevigny, Meg Tilly, Marc Webber and Neville Edwards co-star. Lyonne, repped by WME and 3 Arts, stars on Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black. Recent credits also include Portlandia, Comedy Bang! Bang! and the features Sleeping With Other People and Fresno. She next appears on the big screen in #Horror and Bloomin Mud Shuffle.
