Ready for a new take on Frankenstein? I am. Really looking forward to see what the producers of UNDERWORLD have in store for us. I know producers Richard Wright and James McQuaide and these guys are tuned in to what audiences are looking for in gothic fun. I'm hoping for a great origins story too to help solidify a franchise here.
Here's the storyline for the movie:
200 years after his shocking creation, Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, still walks the earth. But when he finds himself in the middle of a war over the fate of humanity, Adam discovers he holds the key that could destroy humankind. From the co-writer of the hit supernatural saga, UNDERWORLD, comes the action thriller I, FRANKENSTEIN, written for the screen and directed by Stuart Beattie, screen story by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie, based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” created by Kevin Grevioux. The story is brought to life by a cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, and Aden Young as Victor Frankenstein.
I, FRANKENSTEIN opens January 24, 2014.
