A Romantic Spin on ‘Frank’enstein

We scream that we want something original, and then when we finally get it, *sigh*. Fox 2000 has signed Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct the horrific romantic comedy Frank, which sounds dreadful. The story centers on a teenage prodigy who’s on the cutting edge of cell research in medical school and is encouraged by her guidance counselor to take a break from the lab and make some friends. After several unsuccessful attempts at socializing with her peers, she decides to use her scientific prowess and piece together a friend out of the med school’s instructional cadavers. Frankenstein is probably rolling in his grave… or maybe he’ll be watching this with his Bride?
