Another retooling of a classic is headed our way courtesy of Fox 2000 as the studio announced tonight that a new take on the tale of Frankenstein is headed our way! This one with a foothold in the *gulp* romantic-comedy arena.
Variety reports that Fox 2000 has signed Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct Frank with Radar Pictures’ Ted Field and Chris Chase producing.
Frank‘s story centers on a teenage prodigy who’s on the cutting edge of cell research in medical school and is encouraged by her guidance counselor to take a break from the lab and make some friends. After several unsuccessful attempts at socializing with her peers, she decides to use her scientific prowess and piece together a friend out of the med school’s instructional cadavers.
Man, I feel so … so …. so …. dirty.
