Stuart Beattie is now attached to direct Lakeshore’s I, Frankenstein, according to a story at The Hollywood Reporter.
Beattie is primarily known as a writer, having worked on such films as 30 Days of Night, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He will both direct and rewrite the script (from Kevin Grevious, who is executive producing).
The project was first announced to be helmed by Patrick Tatopoulos and features Frankenstein’s monster working as a private detective against a noir background and a city inhabited by famous monsters.
