Skyfall helmer Sam Mendes and co-writer John Logan are in talks with Showtime to develop a high-concept drama series, reports Deadline. But this isn’t any ordinary “drama” as the site says:
“The untitled drama, which has undergone some tweaking from the original spec to tailor it to the Showtime audiences, is described as a psychological horror drama series with literary underpinnings, including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, set in the 1800s.”
This is just the latest Frankenstein-themed project to get some heat. There are a number of films in the works – including Fox’s Frankenstein and Lionsgate’s I, Frankenstein as well as a television series at NBC.
