A “modern” approach to the story
Sony reps have confirmed to us that Craig Fernandez has pitched to the studio and is scripting a modern take on Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.”
The last time the monster surfaced in the halls of Sony was when Kenneth Branagh directed “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” in 1994.
Fernandez’s credits include the upcoming From Prada to Nada and Everything Must Go. No other details regarding his take on the classic Shelley tale have been revealed at this time.
This has to be a blow to Guillermo del Toro who has rumored to be developing a Frankenstein film with Doug Jones set to play the creature.
