Up-and-Comer Resurrects ‘I, Frankenstein’

Stuart Beattie, who penned both 30 Days of Night and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, has come aboard the Lakeshore Entertainment project I, Frankenstein as writer and director. The filmmakers are looking to a fall shoot. This obviously means that FX guru Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) is no longer attached.

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.
