Xavier Samuel Is The New “Frankenstein”

Australian actor Xavier Samuel (“Twilight: Eclipse,” “Newcastle”) is set to play a modern day Frankenstein monster in a contemporary Los Angeles-set reboot of Mary Shelley’s iconic story “Frankenstein” for Bad Badger.

Danny Huston and Carrie-Anne Moss will play Victor and Elizabeth Frankenstein, a husband and wife team of eccentric scientists who create the monster Adam, a creature faced with nothing but anger, aggression and violence from the world around him.

“Candyman” director Bernard Rose is helming and penned the screenplay. He’s also enlisted the Candyman himself, Tony Todd, for a role in the film.

Gabriela Bacher, Heidi Jo Markel, Jennifer Holliday Morrison, Christian Angermayer, Klemens Hallmann are producing.
