Hi, Bryan Here….
So I guess TNT is jumping on the bandwagon with everyone else and are currently developing a horror project. That project is ‘Frankenstein’, based on the five Frankenstein books by Dean Koontz. Those books have sold more than 20 million copies according to Deadline.
James Hart and his son Jake will write the project in to a modern day version of the ‘Frankenstein’ universe. James is not a slacker when it comes to monsters. He wrote Coppola’s ‘Dracula’. “It is set in present-day New Orleans and follows Victor Helios (Frankenstein) and his creation 200 years after they thought they killed each other in a battle in the Arctic. The creature has survived and Victor has used science to keep himself alive — and they’re now in the same city unbeknownst to each other. Victor has engineered a new race of bizarre beings who answer to him, and when the creature learns that Victor is alive, an epic war ensues built on 200 years of pent-up rage, with New Orleans caught in the middle.”
I like that this takes place in New Orleans. Makes sense, what with all the voodoo. So is it safe to say this will be a cross between ‘Treme’ and Frankenstein’, because if so, count me the fuck in.
