Apparently there’s a hot new movie monster in Hollywood, and his name is Frankenstein. According to Deadline, Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures is firing up the laboratory to create The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein, based on the Peter Acrkroyd novel with a script by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright David Auburn. Meanwhile, Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the terrifying Twilight series, is ready to curdle our blood again with the absurdly titled Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein. It’s an adaptation of a novel by Kenneth Oppel and will hopefully have the shiniest Frankenstein monster to date.
Not enough Frankenstein for you? Not to worry, Universal is still actively developing Guillermo Del Toro’s Frankie film, there’s a contemporary take set up at Columbia, and even Slash from Gun’s n’ Roses has his finger in the Frankenstein pie with Wake the Dead, which is based on a Steve Niles graphic novel. Expect to be up to your eyeballs in Frankenstein by 2013, provided these projects are all brought to life.

Yet to see most of these(working on it). Funny that The Violent Kind seems to be getting a lot of polar reactions. I have the Blu coming from Amazon, so I will weigh in eventually, but this film is either godawful or wildly different(in a good way). Surprised Red White + Blue isn't on the list...got that one coming too so I will let ya know eventually if it's worth seeing.
‘Cloverfield’ Director Matt Reeves Lines Up ‘Frankenstein’ Prequel | Geeks of Doom
Actually this is referenced in the above article(without the Matt Reeves attachment). Look, if anyone has the soft emotional touch to make a heartbreaking Frankenstein...well, Reeves pulled rabbits out of his hat with Let Me In, so I automatically care about this.
Matt Reeves, the director behind Cloverfield and the recent Let the Right One In remake, Let Me In, has a few new projects lining up for the future. The latest of said projects to be announced is something of a prequel to Mary Shelley‘s classic horror story, Frankenstein, that will be titled This Dark Endeavor.
It tells the story of Victor Frankenstein and his twin brother, Konrad, who are very close and have been all their lives. When Konrad becomes deathly sick, Victor remembers a library he and his brother once explored—and were forbidden to return to by their father—filled with books of remedies and various alchemical concoctions. Victor returns to the library and discovers the “Elixir of Life,” and sets off to seek the help of an alchemist in finding the ingredients necessary to create the elixir and save his brother’s life.
The movie is based on the Kenneth Oppel book, This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein, which is set to be released this upcoming August 23.
