'Real Steel' Director Tapped to Direct New 'Frankenstein' Movie


Shawn Levy


Shawn Levy has signed on to take the directorial duty on the project, described as sci-fi take on the traditional Mary Shelley story, with Max Landis providing the script.

The 20th Century Fox have found a director for its untitled Frankenstein project. Variety broke the news that "Night at the Museum" helmer Shawn Levy has secured the directional duty of the project, beating other contenders like "Harry Potter" filmmaker David Yates and "The Bourne Ultimatum" director Paul Greengrass.

Levy will be bringing the classic monster tale to life using the script penned by "Chronicle (2012)" scribe Max Landis. Landis' version has been described as a science-fiction take on the traditional Mary Shelly's story, and is said to put the focus on themes of friendship and redemption.

Levy's "Frankenstein" movie is just one of at least a half-dozen other Frankenstein-themed movies currently under development. Some of them are Haley Joel Osment-starring "Wake the Dead", Stuart Beattie's "I, Frankenstein", Summit Entertainment's "This Dark Endeavor", and Sam Raimi-produced "The Casebook of Victor Frankenstein".
