Aussie actress and “Chuck” leading lady Yvonne Strahovski is in final negotiations to join Stuart Beattie’s monster movie “I, Frankenstein” for Lakeshore Entertainment, Hopscotch Features and Lionsgate says Heat Vision.
Based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, Aaron Eckhart plays Frankenstein’s monster who is now called Adam and who is being hunted by demons (lead by Bill Nighy) that want to learn the secret of his creation in order to build an army of reanimated corpse demons.
Strahovski will play the female lead, a scientist working on reanimating the dead and tricked into working for the demons. Miranda Otto (“The Lord of the Rings”) is also onboard as a gargoyle queen who wants to help Frankenstein.
Shooting kicks off in January in Australia.
