Paul McGuigan To Direct “Frankenstein”

“Lucky Number Slevin” helmer Paul McGuigan, who has made a name for himself recently helming all but one episode of the BBC’s much acclaimed “Sherlock”, is in final negotiations to direct Fox’s untitled Frankenstein project says Heat Vision.

Taking a new spin on Mary Shelley’s novel, Max Landis’ script tells the tale through the eyes of Igor, Victor Frankenstein’s assistant.

Shawn Levy was previously linked as director but dropped out. Landis and John Davis remain onboard as producer.
