We live in a world in which you can never have too much Frankenstein. The big guy has been a staple of horror films since their inception, and we’re so happy to see him keep on truckin’!
According to Variety, NBC has ordered a drama script billed as a modern-day take on the legend of Frankenstein. The script comes from two of the executive producers of “House,” Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner, via that series’ studio, Universal Media Studios, and BermanBraun.
“House” is coming up on its eighth and likely final season; Fox has signaled it does not intend to go further, though UMS has the option to shop it elsewhere. UMS is a logical home for a Frankenstein revival given that Universal Studios owns the intellectual property rights to classic movie monsters including Dracula, The Wolfman and The Mummy.
Frankenstein has proved a popular subject on the feature side with at least six different productions currently in development at 20th Century Fox, Summit, Universal and Lakeshore Entertainment to name a few.
More on this one soon!
