I, Frankenstein is currently shooting in Australia and now the first pics of Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, In The Company Of Men) in makeup as the titular monster have emerged. I actually kind of like the look, it’s much more subtle than I expected. And, having seen this, I guess there’s no realistic way Eckhart can take on this role and not be compared to his Dark Knight character Two-Face, no matter how much his actual performance differs.
Stuart Beattie is directing the Lakeshore/Lionsgate movie in which “Frankenstein’s monster vacillating between humanity and monsterdom while being pursued by demons wanting to gain the secret of his reanimated corpse.” The script was written by Kevin Grevioux. In addition to Eckhart, the film stars Bill Nighy, Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto.
I, Frankenstein hits theaters on February 22, 2013. Head inside for the pics courtesy of Pablo Hassan.
