Production News

Production got underway today in Melbourne, Australia on I Frankenstein.

The gothic horror story is directed by Stuart Beattie (pictured), the Australian screenwriter who became a hit director with his first effort Tomorrow When The War Began.

The story is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, which takes forward the Mary Shelley Frankenstein story where that one ends. The creature is found in a modern metropolis and caught between two opposing groups.

It stars the US' Aaron Eckhart and the UK's Bill Nighy alongside a substantial cast of Australian actors: Miranda Otto, Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Steve Mouzakis.

The film is produced by Australia's Hopscotch Features and the US's Lakeshore Entertainment. Producers are Andrew Mason, Richard Wright, Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi.

The government of Victoria said that the production would bring A$37 million to the state and employ up to 500 local cast and crew.

It will shoot in Melbourne's Docklands Film Studios for ten weeks and be released in 2013 by Lakeshore in North America and eOne/Hopscotch in Australia.
