Much like what happened with Worst Case Scenario, I’m beginning to get a bit skeptical of Richard Raaphorst’s Frankenstein’s Army, which was announced to be financed back in February by MPI Media Group, LA-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam.
They stated that production was set to begin in the spring in Prague and Amsterdam, and would be completed by late fall.
Now, website Twitch has posted yet another promo trailer stating that filming has been bumped back to September.
All of the released footage from Raaphorst’s projects have been nothing short of incredible, but I’m strapping myself in for more disappointment – that is until I actually read that “action!” was called.
“Using shocking vintage newsreel footage as his jumping-off point, Raaphorst has hit on a unique and bold premise. Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary’s Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of supersoldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.”
