The Frankenstein monster is hotter than ever — and we’ve yet to see one actually go into production.
Next on the list is Fox, who has tapped Chronicle scribe Max Landis to pen a screenplay based on Mary Shelley’s classic monster tale for the studio, reports Variety.
Davis Entertainment is attached to produce the untitled pic, which Fox will distribute.
No director is attached — or even a front-runner at this point — though studio is eyeing several high-profile helmers including Paul Greengrass, David Yates (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and even Ron Howard had been circling the project, but it appears he’s out, given that The Dark Tower is still up in the air and Tuesday’s revelation that he’s in early talks for Formula 1 biopic Rush.
