I Kill Giants will star child actress Madison Wolfe (Devil’s Due, the first season of True Detective) while Zoe Saldana will play school psychologist Mrs. Mollé. Wolfe was apparently selected from over 500 hopefuls.

I Kill Giants, by Joe Kelly with illustrations by Ken Niimura, is the story of a young misfit, Barbara (Wolfe), who battles both real and imaginary monsters in her life. Kelly has also written the script for the movie .

Saldana’s character, Mrs Mollé, plays a key role by helping Barbara face both internal and external threats, forming an inspiring bond with her in the process.

I Kill Giants will be the big-screen directorial debut of Anders Walter, with original Harry Potter director Chris Columbus producing.

“I’m thrilled to have the massively talented Zoe helping us bring Joe Kelly’s beautiful story to life” says Walter. “I couldn’t be more excited to see Mrs Mollé, a kind, strong and incredibly inspirational character up on the big screen.”

Filming on the I Kill Giants movie is set to begin in early 2016.
