IDW Publishing has announced an all-new horror series with acclaimed creators Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson. Frankenstein Alive, Alive will launch in 2012, picking up right where Mary Shelley’s classic tale ends.
Growing up as a horror fan, there were few characters I was able to relate to more than Frankenstein's monster. There are tons of fans out there who feel the same exact way so for better or worse, the character has become one of the most beloved icons in film history. Being fully aware of this, Sony Pictures is going to the well again to bring forth a new telling of this classic story.
Early this year we learned that Oscar winner Danny Boyle would be returning to his theatre roots with a new adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for the stage, and as of today we know who will be playing both the Monster and his creator, Dr. Frankenstein. In an interesting twist, two people will be alternating playing the roles.
Oscar winner Danny Boyle is returning to his theatre roots as part of the National Theatre's second season for 2010 with a new adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Boyle will make his debut at the respected venue directing Nick Dear's play as a "large-scale and theatrically and visually ambitious stage production."
