We have some quickie news coming in for I, Frankenstein. Sitcom favorite Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”, Killer Elite) recently offered hungry fans a little insight as to whom she’ll be playing in the flick and whether or not she’ll continue to keep you in stitches.
“I’m flying in a couple of weeks to Australia to shoot another movie with Aaron Eckhart, which I’m really excited about, called I, Frankenstein,” she tells MovieWeb. “It’s going to be sort of an action-drama-romance type movie. I play a scientist, and I think I’m changing up my accent. I’m going to be British in this one, which is nice for a change. I’ve been an American for so many years now (laughs). It’s kind of a modern take on the original (Frankenstein) story. There will be some romantic elements, I think it’s safe to say that much.”
I, Frankenstein stars Aaron Eckhart who plays Adam, the Frankenstein monster, along with Bill Nighy and Socratis Otto. The film was written and is to be directed by Stuart Beattie and is based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, co-creator of the Underworld franchise. Lionsgate will distribute the film in the United States, Lakeshore will handle international sales, and E1/Hopscotch will distribute in Australia. A U.S. release is slated for February 22, 2013.
Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, and Richard Wright will produce with Hopscotch’s Andrew Mason, while Grievoux will exec produce with Hopscotch’s Troy Lum. Lionsgate exec Michael Paseornek will oversee the project for the studio.
Look for more soon!
