Patrick Tatopoulos

After years of working in art and make-up departments and designing various creature effects for films like Godzilla (1998) and I Am Legend, Patrick Tatopoulos moved onward and upward by directing his first feature film - Screen Gems' Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Though Tatopoulos has been developing an adaptation of Kevin Grevioux's Darkstorm comic I, Frankenstein (which is supposed to shoot this summer), Heat Vision reports he is also negotiating to direct The Colony, the story of a group of survivors forced underground by the next ice age who must fight to preserve humanity against a savage threat (or bugs!).

Production on The Colony is supposed to begin this fall, so if I, Frankenstein is still on track, Tatopoulos will be quite the busy man for the second half of 2010. However, since we haven't heard anything in the vein of casting or any other developments on I, Frankenstein, I'd assume that it's no longer on schedule to start shooting in July. Though The Colony mixes things up by changing the setting and set-up for what ultimately seems like a typical horror flick, I'd much rather see Tatopoulos take on I, Frankenstein first. Anyway, stay tuned for developments on both of these projects as more news becomes available. Anyone interested?

    agreed, The Colony sounds good and I bet it'll look fantastic but I'd much rather see what he can do with I, Frankenstein.

    I, Frankenstein is a stupid concept. I'd much rather see The Colony.
