The story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster has been told and retold so many times that it's not surprising that we've reached the point where Mary Shelley's classic horror story has become an apocalyptic action movie. 'I, Frankenstein' stars Aaron Eckhart as the immortal monster-turned-action hero and the first poster for the 2014 release has arrived.
Supernatural and classic monster tales seem to have become all the rage in TV these days, with everything from 'Beauty and the Beast' to NBC's 'Mockingbird Lane' to capitalize on the spooky trend. Now TNT looks to get in the game with their own version of the 'Frankenstein' myth, but who needs Mary Shelley when you have Dean Koontz? Rather than a classic adaptation, TNT's version will cull from the modern-day New Orleans incarnation. But what father-son duo will bring the monster to life?
As we've previously reported, a new 'Frankenstein' movie adapted from Mary Shelley's classic novel is in the works from 20th Century Fox with Max Landis penning and Paul McGuigan directing. Hopefully one of the next steps will be gathering up some big names to fill in the lead roles, but we're sure that won't be a problem, especially considering that 'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe has reportedly expressed interest in portraying a lead part... but which one?
Found footage movies; some movie-goers can't live with them, most can't live without them. Ever since 'Paranormal Activity' restarted the fire in Hollywood, studios are still some-what hellbent on trying to cash in on the latest cinematic fad. In enters 'The Reawakening,' yet another Frankenstein project with a twist that just got the green light.
