We have all been waiting patiently for a look at the goods from the now shooting Frankenstein’s Army. Finally something juicy has come! See? Good things happen for those who wait. Dig it!
Over on Twitch they have an image/video on display showcasing a rather gory prop from Richard Raaphorst’s upcoming flick courtesy of Special Effects Supervisor Rogier Samuels, who appeared last week on the Netherlands talk show “De Wereld Draait Door”. Check out the image and hit the link below to watch the video.
The Czech shoot, portraying Viktor Frankenstein’s efforts to turn around German fortunes by animating super soldiers from the body parts of the fallen, is Richard Raaphorst’s helming debut and is before cameras right now (how we love saying that).
Karel Roden (The Abandoned, Hellboy, A Lonely Place to Die) plays mad Nazi scientist Viktor, and the flick also features Alexander Mercury (The Golden Compass), Joshua Sasse (The Big I Am), Luke Newberry (The Heart of Me), Andrei Zayats (X-Men: First Class), and Hon Ping Tang (The Fifth Element).
Frankenstein’s Army takes place toward the end of World War II, as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor 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.
