Every good heist story needs an element of chaos. If there wasn’t one, then the entire heist would go exactly as planned, and that’s no fun. All of the excitement, the tension in the situation, comes from the fact that something unexpected has occurred, and now the film’s heroic ne’er-do-wells have to adapt to new circumstances. Unfortunately, adaptation may be impossible for the heroes of the upcoming film “The Kaiju Score.” After all, it’s almost impossible to account for anything that happens when a giant monster attacks the city, especially when you’re midway through the biggest heist of your life.
Based on the comic series by writer James Patrick and artist Rem Broo, “The Kaiju Score” is the most recent planned film from Sony Pictures and Escape Artists (via Deadline). It sets out to adapt the first (and only) arc of the four-volume comic series released by AfterShock comics in 2020. This film was announced only recently, so information is still sparse. That being said, there’s still much to discuss about “The Kaiju Score.” Here is what we know so far.
