I, FRANKENSTEIN Set Wrecked By Hooligans

I, FRANKENSTEIN Set Wrecked By Hooligans

Early Sunday morning the set of Aaron Eckhart's I, Frankenstein was trashed by real life monsters. It is also believed that a security guard was possibly injured during the attack.

The Herald Sun is reporting that the I, Frankstein set in Park Orchards was attacked by a bunch of savages Sunday at around 1am local time. I had just posted a new article showing the construction of a cemetery set the other day which you can view here

Police said they are now investigating the incident with the damage bill unknown. "The complainant heard crashing and banging and when police units attended there was substantial damage," A Victoria Police spokeswoman said. A nearby resident said she heard sirens and a police helicopter hovering in the early hours of Sunday morning. Residents also believed a security guard was hurt but police were unable to confirm those reports.

The Hollywood production was set to film flying scenes today involving trapeze stunts. There is no word yet if those scenes will be put on hold while the sets are restored. The production is expected to spend up to $37 million and will also be expected to employ about 500 local cast and crew members.

I, Frankenstein will be in theaters February 22nd, 2013. The film stars: Aaron Eckhart (The Dark knight, Thank You for Smoking), Bill Nighy (Underworld, Love Actually), Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings), Yvonne Strahovski (Killer Elite, I love You Too) and Socratis Otto (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

"real life monsters"? Emm, they didn't rape or murder anyone here, let's have a bit of perspective! Assholes yes, monsters no.

are they giving the monster a name in this adaption? Cause Frankenstein is the doctor, not the monster.

It kind of looks better this way, actually. I'm sure it was all intended and all this is a stupid publicity stunt.

Well that sucks. Is Eckhart playing Dr. Frankenstein or The Monster?

The monster's name is Adam Frankenstein.

no one really knows where Park Orchards is and I'm really glad. I live 200m from the set and its really nice to go for a walk and see what they're up to, maybe glimpse a scene or two in action. But after the Herald Sun reported on the whereabouts of the set, everyone from everywhere has come and ruined the experience for us locals. Outsiders have even brought in alcohol, being loud and obnoxious.
Low life scum. Trashing a bloody film set. Yeah bet you feel awesome now.
