I, Frankenstein

I, Frankenstein Issue 1The international and Australian cast of I, Frankenstein  has now begun to arrive in Melbourne ahead of the film’s February 27 start of production date. We have been following this production since its announcement, and we are very excited Australia will be hosting this.

Cast members including Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Miranda Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Socratis Otto will be in Victoria for the ten-week shoot.

The modern-day gothic thriller is based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, the creator of the Underworld franchise,  and will be produced by Lakeshore Entertainment in association with Hopscotch Features.

Writer/director, Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow When the War Began) explains, “Mary Shelley’s story is about the creation of the first human being. I, Frankenstein is the story about that being becoming human.”

I, Frankenstein is currently slated for a 22 February 2013 release from Lionsgate in the US. Hopscotch/eOne will distribute the film in Australia.
