In 1988, Spörri travels to Egypt. During his adventurous stay, he meets an old tomb robber who knows more about the pyramids than many an Egyptologist. At the end of the meeting, the Arab gives the Swiss a glimpse of his family treasure, which includes a gruesome relic. Spörri is shocked and fascinated at the same time, because the relic is apparently the mummified finger of a man-like giant, as they appear in ancient sagas, legends, apocrypha and in the Bible.

The mysterious ‘biblical’ giants never let go of Spörri. The urge to explore was awakened in him. Over the decades, he returned to Egypt again and again and also went in search of clues in more distant countries.
Over the years, he accumulates more and more material on his research. Spörri would like to publish his research results in a non-fiction book, but too many questions remain unanswered for a serious publication, so he leaves it alone.
The well-known dark art artist and alien creator H.R. Giger is fascinated by Spörri’s material and advises him to process his theses and ideas into a fictional story.
Spörri accepts the challenge. In the following 25 years, four versions of his story appear: The Iron World and LOST GOD (1995, 2012, 2017, 2020). His niche novel based on the paleo-SETI thesis polarizes, because its content is strikingly different from the usual mainstream of the mystery and end-times genre.
Over the years, the author receives numerous letters asking him to bring the story to the big screen. Spörri has a hard time with the idea because his novel contains a lot of material that cannot be filmed. Nevertheless, by 2018, various sketches, models and a first screenplay are created, which, as suspected, does not work. In addition, test shots for a trailer are shot, etc.
Because the novel versions from 1995 to 2020 do not work as a film template and are altogether too extensive, the author decides to shorten the story significantly, move it further into the future and rewrite it in places for a wider audience. In the end, there is still enough material for a gripping dramatic film in two parts.
At the end of March 2021, the first script for Part 1 will be ready. It bears the working title: LOST GOD – The Prophecy.
