‘Avengers’-style Horror ‘Monster X’ Rising From Benderspink

Benderspink has optioned the script Monster X from Monsterfoot Productions, with the project based on an original idea by Monsterfoot principal Ahmet Zappa, reports THR.

The idea is a sort of Avengers-style take on the classic monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein’s creature, Mr. Hyde and others. (There’s 10 in total and the “X” in the title is actually the Roman number 10.) The who’s who of monsters are assembled to defend humanity against an even greater threat to them all.

Zappa co-wrote the initial script. The plan is to further develop the script before taking it out to buyers.

  • Erebus Dirge

    This is kind of like an idea I had where all the classic monsters call a truce and have a sit down so that they can combine their efforts and take on Cthulu and his cosmic horrors which are robbing them if their mythology.

  • dirtyghettok

    Yes, originality… Looking good. Except that photo of another guy with insecurity issue’s flashing the devil horns.

  • Ultrazilla

    Ten famous monsters unite to fend off a greater threat? Fun, but I wouldn’t say “originality”, as that exact scenario was seen in the Toho classic, Destroy All Monsters. And since Godzilla’s final foe in Godzilla Final Wars was named Monster X…I’m guessing Zappa is a Toho fan.
