Momentum Pictures, Alliance Films’ U.K. distribution division, has signed up to take writer/director Richard Raaphorst’s horror film Frankenstein’s Army on a British tour of duty, reports Screen Daily.
Shooting in Prague the movie marks Dutch director Raaphorst’s debut after his award winning “Worst Case Scenario” shorts catapulted him into popularity among horror fans worldwide.
“The story is set towards the end of World War II and sees 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. Viktor Frankenstein.
The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of supersoldiers stitched together from a combination of the body parts of their fallen comrades, weapons and machinery – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.”
They also reveal that the movie is finally shooting in Europe. It is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films, Los Angeles-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam.
