Bernard Rose's Frankenstein starring Carrie-Anne Moss picked up by Alchemy

The US rights to Bernard Rose's FRANKENSTEIN have been acquired by Alchemy following the film's highly acclaimed World Premiere at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival where it was awarded the grand prize, the Golden Raven Award.

The modern-day adaptation of the classic thriller was written and directed by Rose (CANDYMAN) and stars Xavier Samuel, Carrie-Ann Moss, Tony Todd, and Danny Huston.

FRANKENSTEIN is set in present day Los Angeles, and is told entirely from the perspective of The Monster. Artificially-created and left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is faced with nothing but hostility and aggression as he comes to grips with the horrific nature of humanity, and the violence of those that made him.

On confirming the sale, producers Gabriela Bacher and Heidi Jo Markel said: "Alchemy is the perfect partner to bring this modern take on a timeless story to American audiences. Alchemy’s acquisition is testament to the worldwide demand and hunger for new, contemporary visions and well-crafted filmmaking - audiences have never seen a monster quite like this."

We're going to have to wait a little longer for a release date.
