My mate Stuart Beattie directs this one. It’s a project that was floating around for quite a while before the board was officially clapped, but only because there was a change of guard in terms of the production team, and maybe a slight reskew of the tone here and there. Nothing to do with the viability of the project I believe. Just typical ‘shit that happens’ on a way to a movie’s making.
Beattie did a top job with Aussie flick “Tomorrow When The War Began”, so I imagine that, with a bigger budget, couple of absolute legend actors (in particular, Aaron Eckhart and Bill Nighy), he’ll cream the goods from this one’s privates pretty easily.
“I, Frankenstein” is out January 24.
