New Writers Hired For "Frankenstein" Film

Below is courtesy of,

20th Century Fox has hired Max Landis, who recently sold two spec script to the studio, to write the script for a new "Frankenstein" movie. John Davis (Predators, I Robot) is producing.

Details of the new project are being kept a secret, but Landis is no stranger to monsters. He worked with his father, John Landis (Trading Places, The Blues Brothers), on the "Masters of Horror" televion series.

No front-runner has emerged to direct the film, but the studio is eyeing several high-profile helmers, including Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum), David Yates (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and Ron Howard (Da Vinci Code).

Kenneth Branagh's 1994 "Frankenstein" was the last time the famous monster graced the big screen, but there are plenty of other "Frankenstein" films in the works, including Matt Reeves' "This Dark Endeavor," Timur Bekmambetov's "Casebook of Victor Frankenstein," Stuart Beattie's "I Frankenstein," and Guillermo Del Toro's "Frankenstein."
