Lionsgate has cast their monster in their upcoming film adaptation of the comic book I, Frankenstein, created by Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux.
Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) has been cast in the film as Adam Frankenstein in the Stuart Beattie directed which is a gothic, modern-day fantasy thriller tells the story of the original monster of Victor Frankenstein, who stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world.
I think this could end up being very entertaining movie, here are a few things that we've heard about the movie from a interview that Grevioux previously gave, that will give you an idea of what to expect.
- The story will take place in a modern day setting.
- It will involve classic monsters of lore, like vampires, werewolves, mummies, goblins, ghosts, things of that nature. Frankenstein's going to be involved with them.
- For the part of Frankenstein they want a bigger guy, anywhere from 6'2" to 6'6", a tad bit intimidating, someone who could act obviously, has a witty banter about him.
- It will be a straight-forward action film that's really going to raise eyebrows.
