First Look at Aaron Eckhart as the Monster in I, Frankenstein
04.17.12 by BJSprecher
Lakeshore Entertainment's I, Frankenstein adaptation went into production in Melbourne, Australia, at the end of February and we finally have our first look at Aaron Eckhart as Frankenstein's monster, Adam. Photographer Everhardt Strauss posted several photos from the set on his Flickr account.
Based on the Darkstorm Comics series created by Kevin Grevioux (Underworld), I, Frankenstein is being directed by Stuart Beattie (30 Days of Night), who also wrote the screenplay. The movie is set in an ancient city populated by all manner of monsters, where Adam finds himself caught up in a war between immortal enemies.
The full cast list has yet to be released, but it is known that Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) plays one of the major villains, a character he described to BBC Radio 2 as a "nasty piece of work," an angel who "descended with Satan." Yvonne Strahovski (TV's Chuck, Killer Elite) plays the female lead, a scientist experimenting with reanimating the dead, while Miranda Otto (In Her Skin) plays the queen of the gargoyles. Socratis Otto (Anyone You Want) also stars in an as-yet-unspecified villainous role.
I, Frankenstein is tentatively slated for a February 2013 release.
