According to ERC Box Office, 20th Century Fox has set its live action Frankenstein adaptation for an October 17th, 2014 theatrical release date. Paul McGuigan (Sherlock) is attached to direct from a script written by Chronicle's Max Landis, while Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is said to be locked down to play the hunchback Igor. Shawn Levy was originally set to direct the adaptation, but dropped out due to budget/scheduling issues. The film is one of multiple Frankenstein productions in development, including Lionsgate's 2014 release I, Frankenstein. Stay tuned to CBM for more new on Frankenstein.

Alvin & the Chipmunks 4? Take a hint, we all hated those movies.

Ok Radcliffe as Igor...Go ahead could surprise us all...


BUT seriously, how much are studios fighting for films and characters these days. First Fox and Marvel have it out over Quicksilver usage...now Lionsgate and Fox bringing out a Frankenstein movie out the same year..Jeez..

Max Landis is an egotistical [frick], but he's a damn good screenwriter. Listen to his episode on The Nerdist, SO MANY IDEAS IN HIS HEAD.

I sincerely thought that Chipwrecked would be the last of the Munks within the foreseeable future. I gave up after the second film.

@SotoJuiceMan: We ALL know that! Its just that they are polluting the younglings' minds with this crappy idea of Alvin and the Chipmunks! They didn't grow up with the cartoons like most of us did. Alvin and the Chipmunks deserve MUCH better than that crap they put their names on!

They should do it right this time.

Cool Harry Potter is going to be in this. Hopefully it'll have the same tone as 'The Mummy 1 + 2' remake

TheSuperguy - 6/8/2013, 11:45 AM
I'm excited that they're bringing back the classic monsters, but, it's kind of weird that Fox is doing this and not Universal.
