Stuart Beattie To Write/Direct “I, Frankenstein”

Stuart Beattie has come onboard Lakeshore Entertainment’s contemporary fantasy thriller based on the upcoming Darkstorm Studios graphic novel “I, Frankenstein” says Heat Vision.

The story follows the original monster of Victor Frankenstein who is the only force that stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world.

“Underworld” series scribe Kevin Grevioux penned the script while FX designer turned filmmaker Patrick Tatopoulos (“Underworld: Rise of the Lycans”) was attached to direct. Now, Beattie is expected to polish the script and take over the director’s chair.

Stuart Beattie has just come off adapting/directing the Australian action film “Tomorrow, When the War Began” and is expected to helm back-to-back sequels to that sometime in the near future.

Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Richard Wright will produce and shooting kicks off in the Fall.
