Check This Out: Gritty New Concept Art from I, Frankenstein

Back in April we announced a new project called I, Frankenstein that is being developed by Underworld: Rise of the Lycans director Patrick Tatopoulos and Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux. The film is an adaptation of a Dark Horse comic of the same name that brings together various classic monsters, including Frankenstein's Monster, the Invisible Man, Dracula and the Hunchback of Notre Dame, in a contemporary film noir setting. A handful of various websites have unveiled four different concept art images today from the in-development project for your viewing pleasure. Each one features a different monster character.
Thanks to IESB, ShockTillYouDrop, Bloody-Disgusting, and AICN for debuting these - click on any of them above to see them in high resolution. When compared to the comic book version of I, Frankenstein, there are some differences. These images represent Patrick's vision of the world created by Kevin Grevioux who is currently hard at work on the script for the film. The concept is that these characters are a bit more advance than before, like Frankenstein is a detective, and Dracula is a kingpin of crime, and so on. I'm really digging the concept and these images so far. Looking forward to seeing this develop! Stay tuned for more updates.
Frankenstein as a detective and Dracula as a kingpin of crime? This is sounding good... 🙂

i love mixing up classic monsters, so as long as it doesn't suck as much as Underworld did then I'm down

The whole concept of mixing movie monsters has never really been done successfully on film (need I mention Van Helsing?). For me, this has been done beyond the point of interest but this film may succeed where others have failed.

Underworld was awesome. Perfect director for an undertaking like this.
