EXCL: Shawn Levy Talks Frankenstein and Fantastic Voyage

“According to the internet, I’m going to be directing 19 different movies simultaneously as my next,” he laughed, “[but] ‘Frankenstein’ is a very good possibility.”

Rumored for the adaptation last month, Levy would adapt Max Landis’ screenplay, based on Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel. Details are few, but he did drop one hint of what audiences can expect.

“It’s a radical retelling of that Frankenstein legend,” he teased.

The other project, the Isaac Asimov adaptation, Fantastic Voyage, also appears to still be on the table, despite rumors last month that Levy might pass.

“‘Fantastic Voyage’ I’ve been working on with Jim Cameron for the last seven months,” he said, “We’ve got a script and a world design that we love. It’ll be an underwater, 3D action sci-fi extravaganza.”

Real Steel opens in regular theaters and IMAX on October 7.
