Paul McGuigan Set To Direct FRANKENSTEIN For Fox
"It's alive!" One of the true classic monsters will be returning to the big screen, as Fox have tapped the Lucky Number Slevin director to helm a brand new adaptation of Mary Shelly's terrifying tale. Details are scarce, but read on for what we have..
Variety report that Twentieth Century Fox and Davis Entertainment are in final talks with Lucky Number Slevin director Paul McGuigan to bring a new take on Frankenstein to the screen, with a script by Chronicle scribe Max Landis. Real Steel director Shawn Levy had initially been in line for the directing job.
The last time we saw a straight adaptation of the story was the mediocre Mary Shelly's Frankenstein from Kenneth Branagh, but a variation on the character also appeared in the woeful Van Helsing. There aren't any new details on what we can expect from this incarnation of the story yet, but we will keep you posted.
