Sony Pictures Developing Their Own ‘Frankenstein’

A brief story just hit Deadline who report that Sony Pictures Entertainment producer Matt Tolmach is at the center of a preemptive pitch deal for yet another Frankenstein. The film will be a contemporary version of the Mary Shelley novel. Craig Fernandez pitched the project and will write the script. Tolmach will produce through Matt Tolmach Productions. No other details were revealed, but I’d like to actually see one of the handful of “modern Frankenstein” tales in theaters some time this millennium. Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is a classic tale of a man-made monster seeking acceptance from society in light of his ghastly appearance and strange upbringing.
