It feels as if we’ve been talking about Richard Raaphorst’s Frankenstein’s Army for ages already. Still, with a little luck and a shooting schedule that’s to begin in 2012, maybe we’ll actually see it! In any event … new art! Dig it!
Back in February it was announced that the flick would be financed by MPI Media Group, LA-based XYZ Films and Pellicola of Amsterdam. Production is set to begin in spring 2012 in Prague and Amsterdam and should be completed by late fall.
Using shocking vintage newsreel footage as his jumping-off point, Raaphorst has hit on a unique and bold premise. Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.
