Norse fantasy tale funded on Kickstarter to become movie

'Fall of Gods'

Film studio 20th Century Fox will be bringing an illustrated fantasy book that began on Kickstarter to the big screen.

After more than doubling its fundraising goal of $40,000, the creators of "Fall of Gods" will see their Norse fantasy come to life under Wes Ball, who directed "The Maze Runner," reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Created by Denmark-based Mood Studios, "Fall of Gods" centers on warrior Vali, who is forced out of retirement when his wife is mysteriously kidnapped.

After years of living peaceably, Vali must confront his past demons and transgressions.

"Suddenly, the man he thought he had buried deep down inside has risen to the surface once more...and he comes seeking vengeance," reads the Kickstarter description.
