According to Variety, Scott Elder and Josh Harmon have been hired to adapt the AIT/Planet Lar graphic novel, which the studio bought last summer.
The 2007 graphic novel focuses on a team of first-responders who guard the citizens of Lapuatu, a Pacific island that would be a paradise except for frequent attacks by giant monsters that rise from the sea. Marc Bernardin and Adam Freeman wrote the graphic novel, illustrated by Nima Sorat.
Jason Netter is producing through his Kickstart banner. Disney views the film as a visual effects-heavy tentpole, built around an elite government agency's resolve to protect America's coasts from huge, rampaging monsters.
No production date has been set.
