Stuart Beattie To Pen and Direct I, Frankenstein

I, Frankenstein has found its writing brain. According to a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Lakeshore Entertainment has hired Stuart Beattie as its screenplay writer and director. Beattie is best known for his writing has worked on films such as G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Australia and 30 Days of Night.

A Darkstorm Studios graphic novel created by Kevin Grevioux, I, Frankenstein pictures a modern-day world where the classic literary monster stands between humans and a host of other supernatural creatures looking to rise up and take over. Grevioux co-created the successful werewolves vs. vampires series Underworld, also produced by Lakeshore.

In the midst of all these vampire and werewolves battle, and now the upcoming spins on classic fairy tales, it’s nice to see that Frankenstein hasn’t been forgotten. The film is looking to start film production in the fall and I’m interested in seeing more from it.
