Another Frankenstein movie is about to enter production. According to Deadline, Matt Reeves has been as director for this movie entitled ‘This Dark Endeavor,’ with Jacob Aaron Estes writing the script for Summit Entertainment. The film is based on the Kenneth Oppel novel ‘This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein.’ The book will be published this summer and is the first of a series to be printed.
Mike Fleming from Deadline had this to say, “In the Oppel novel, Frankenstein’s twin Konrad is gravely ill. His brother seeks out a mysterious old alchemist to help him produce the Elixir of Life, a serum that will bestow the gift of perpetual health. You can’t order this drink at a pub, and Frankenstein sets out on a dangerous adventure to find the elusive contents. He’s accompanied by his best friend Elizabeth, who is sweet on Konrad. Things get complicated among the three of them.”
We’ve seen lots of zombie and vampire movies, but not so many Frankenstein ones… let’s hope this is a good quality movie. We’ll be sure to bring you more information on this project as it becomes available.
