The director of Candyman is taking on a modern day take on Frankenstein. But let’s not forget that he recently directed both Sxtape and Snuff-Movie. Yuck.
Deadline reports that The Twilight Saga and The Loved Ones‘ Xavier Samuel, pictured above, will star as Frankenstein’s monster in a new contemporized take on Mary Shelley’s iconic horror creation, from Bernard Rose.
Produced by Eclectic Pictures, “Frankenstein is set in present-day Los Angeles and told from the perspective of Adam/The Monster (Samuel), who is created by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists only to be met with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him.”
Even though Rose hasn’t made a good movie in years, he landed quite the impressive cast that includes “American Horror Story: Coven” and 30 Days of Night‘s Danny Huston and Matrix vet Carrie-Anne Moss, who will play Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein, respectively. Candyman star Tony Todd, pictured below, also stars.
Rose adapted the script himself, updating Shelley’s classic tome as he did with Tolstoy in ivan’s xtc.
