Sony Pictures is Resurrecting Frankenstein

Source: comingsoon.net

December 2, 2010

Sony reps have confirmed to us that Craig Fernandez has pitched to the studio and is scripting a modern take on Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein."

The last time the monster surfaced in the halls of Sony was when Kenneth Branagh directed Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in 1994.

Fernandez's credits include the upcoming From Prada to Nada and Everything Must Go. No other details regarding his take on the classic Shelley tale have been revealed at this time.

James McAvoy Boards 20th Century Fox's Frankenstein

Source: ComingSoon

July 25, 2013

James McAvoy is set to play Victor Frankenstein in 20th Century Fox's upcoming Frankenstein. Deadline has the news, reporting that the X-Men: First Class star will join Daniel Radcliffe, cast earlier this year in the Igor role. Paul McGuigan is attached to direct.

The film, scripted by Max Landis (Chronicle) adapts Mary Shelley's 1818 novel.

"I began to pick apart our knowledge of 'Frankenstein' and discovered that the public’s idea of this myth comes from a million different places," Landis told ShockTillYouDrop.com last year. "...I became committed to recontextualizing it all so it all worked in one story. By the end of the day, it’s a period piece and yes, it’s from Igor’s perspective, but man it’s cool. It’s the best thing I’ve written."

McAvoy, who starred earlier this year in Danny Boyle's Trance, will return next summer as Professor Charles Xavier in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The animated film, produced by Guillermo del Toro, is said to be a "Romeo and Juliet" style love story set against a Mexican "Day of the Dead" backdrop.
