Lakeshore Entertainment has been trying their hardest to get the jump on making a Frankenstein adaptation by making a movie based on Keven Grevioux‘s graphic novel I, Frankenstein. "The Underworld-like story, a “contemporary fantasy thriller in which the original monster of Victor Frankenstein stands between the human race and an upring of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world,” was originally going to be directed by Underworld: Rise of the Lycans director Patrick Tatopoulos."
Now according to SlashFIlms.com, Bill Nighy is in talks to keep the Underworld comparisons going by playing the villain of the film.
Plot Synops: I FRANKENSTEIN is a modern-day epic: Frankenstein’s creature, ADAM, has survived to present day due to a genetic quirk in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans. As writer/director, Stuart Beattie said, “Mary Shelly’s story is about the creation of the first human being. This is the story about that being becoming human.”
“We’ve tremendously enjoyed making our UNDERWORLD franchise films and we are looking forward to working with Stuart and our partners at Hopscotch and Lionsgate to create a new world for a legendary character,” said Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg.
