Noir Frankenstein?

Seems like no matter how many horror movies get made, someone will always find a way to put a different spin on old ideas. Like, say, transposing Mary Shelley's classic (and public domain) Frankenstein's Monster to the modern day... as a hard-boiled gun-toting action hero with a dash of Chandler? Sure, why not!

I, FRANKENSTEIN, to be adapted from an upcoming comic, is "a re-imagining of the Frankenstein mythos in a modern day setting," and will also feature his encounters with other well-known creatures like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Invisible Man and Dracula. 

The project comes from people who know the genre intimately -- writer Kevin Grievoux (who co-created the UNDERWORLD series) and director Patrick Tatopoulos, a design and FX veteran who also recently filmed UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS.

And that's not all -- horror journalist extraordinaire Ryan Rotten (of STYD) and IESB.net webmaster turned hotshot producer Robert Sanchez are also involved in breathing new life into Frank's reanimated corpse! Congrats, fellers!
