Writer-Director to Bring Us Sherlock Holmes vs. Frankenstein

by ShockTillYouDrop

July 02, 2012

The Frankenstein monster has taken on many a foe in cinema, namely his creator. Now, his world is colliding with Sherlock Holmes in, well, the aptly titled Sherlock Holmes vs. Frankenstein, says Screen Daily.

Parkland Pictures is shepherding/selling the project which has French director Gautier Cazenave attached.

According to the site, the film "sees Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson travelling to Germany to investigate a strange case in the village of Darmstadt." Shocker. This stuff writes itself.

Hammer vet Shane Briant - who appeared in Captain Kronos and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell - is attached to star with Clement Von Franckenstein (apparently a real-life baron whose family name served as the inspiration for Mary Shelley's novel).

The film has nothing to do with the 2006 book Sherlock Holmes: The Adventure of the Frankenstein Monster.

We'll see if this one ever gets off of the ground...
