Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, a Fall of Gods movie is in the works at 20th Century Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has picked up the rights to the illustrated novel from MOOD Visuals and has set The Maze Runner franchise helmer Wes Ball to direct. A stylized look at Norse mythology,

Fall of Gods is officially described as follows:

The gods have long ago vanished. In their place, two rivaling races now inhabit Midgard; humans and jotnar. Fifteen years ago, a coalition of chieftains drove the jotnar race from Midgard. Now, from each side of the border, humans and jotnar eye each other with hatred and suspicion.

When his wife, the estranged daughter of one of Midgard’s most powerful chieftains, is mysteriously kidnapped, a retired warrior takes up the hatchet and sets out to rescue her. But he risks unleashing the wild demon buried deep within him and losing his soul in the process. His journey will bring him into conflict with terrible forces as a cynical plot is revealed and the dark mythological past of the North begins to awaken once more.

At the close of the project’s Kickstarter campaign last October, Fall of Gods had raised more than $96,000.

Ball, whose Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials opens in theaters September 18, will also produce the Fall of Gods movie alongside Joe Hartwick Jr., Steve Tzirlin and Brooklyn Weaver.
