Grevioux & Tatopoulos Reteam for “I, Frankenstein”
Screenwriter and actor Kevin Grevioux, who co-created the “Underworld” franchise, is reteaming with Patrick Tatopoulos, director of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, for a new project based on Grevioux’s upcoming Darkstorm Comics series I, Frankenstein.
“I, Frankenstein” will bring together classic monster characters, including Frankenstein’s Monster, the Invisible Man, Dracula and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, in a contemporary film noir setting.
The Monster, for example, has evolved, learned how to control his anger and now acts as a private investigator. Dracula, meanwhile, is a kingpin of crime, and the Invisible Man is a secret operative.
Grevioux will pen the adaptation and act as a producer. Tatopoulos, a longtime creature designer for such films as “I Am Legend” and “Godzilla” who made his directorial debut with “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans,” will helm.
