Some extremely exciting news just broke over at NY Mag’s Vulture, who reports that Radio Silence, the directing quartet behind the final segment in our found-footage Sundance horror flick V/H/S — picked up for distribution by Magnolia Pictures this August — is in negotiations with Lionsgate to direct The Reawakening, another found-footage horror script, this one from screenwriter Luke Dawson (Shutter) that’s equal parts Flatliners and Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein.”
The site also speaks on the massive “Frankenstein” moment in Hollywood. Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein is set in the present day and seems equal parts “Frankenstein” and Underworld, with the monster caught between warring factions of gargoyles and demons. Simultaneously, Fox is developing its own “Frankenstein” with Neighborhood Watch producer Shawn Levy, as is Columbia Pictures, which has put David Fincher on the reanimation tale being produced by The Amazing Spider-Man producer Matt Tolmach. And Universal is not only developing a “Frankenstein” with Battleship producer Scott Stuber and Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro, but also a Bride of Frankenstein with Limitless director Neil Burger.
