Shawn Levy Confirmed For ‘Frankenstein’?

I’m not exactly sure how this is any different than what we knew last week but Variety is reporting that Shawn Levy has signed on to direct Frankenstein for Fox.

Per Variety, “[the] studio would not confirm Levy’s attachment, and contract details still need to be worked out, but all sides have agreed that he’ll take on the project.” So I’d take this with a grain of salt. I mean, it’s definitely likely that he’ll end up doing the film as I’m sure he’s already accepted some kind of offer. But I’ve seen directors fall off of films for all kinds of reasons even after their deals are done, so who knows what will shake out when the contract is actually drawn up.

Max Landis’ (son of John!) script reportedly adds a sci-fi bent to the material. The bad news is that Levy beat out actual visionary directors like Paul Greengrass and David Yates for the gig. The good news is that there are at least SIX other versions of Frankenstein in development right now.

So maybe one of those will be good. I mean, who knows? Maybe this one will be good too! I just think that Levy is far too workmanlike a director to bring much new to the table.
