Lionsgate has released the first official pictures of Aaron Eckhart (“The Dark Knight“) as Frankenstein’s Monster in their upcoming horror/action flick, “I, Frankenstein.” Check out the image below and let us know what you think.
I, FRANKENSTEIN is a contemporary fantasy thriller in which the original monster of Victor Frankenstein stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world.
Directed by screenwriter Stuart Beattie (“Pirates of the Caribbean”), the film also includes actors Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”), Bill Nighy (“Total Recall”) and Jai Courtney (“Spartacus: Blood & Sand”).
“I, Frankenstein” is scheduled for release Feb. 22, 2013.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Kevin Grevioux, “I, Frankenstein” is one of numerous “Frankenstein“-related projects currently in production, including the adaptation of Steve Niles‘ “Wake the Dead.” Although I have yet to read the graphic novel, the premise does sound intriguing, and Aaron Eckhart as Adam Frankenstein sounds like an interesting choice.
