Beattie to write and direct ‘I, Frankenstein’ adaptation.

Screenwriter Stuart Beattie (’30 Days of Night,’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ ‘G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra’) has signed on to write and direct an adaptation of Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel ‘I, Frankenstein,’ reports Heat Vision.

The graphic novel pictures “a modern-day world where the classic literary monster stands between humans and a host of other supernatural creatures looking to rise up and take over.”

Beattie made his directorial debut with 2010’s Australian teen action drama ‘Tomorrow, When the War Began.’ Some of you may remember Grevioux as co-creator of the ‘Underworld’ franchise, in which he starred as the lycan Raze.
