Although our Vintage Trailer of the Day from a few days ago might have something to say about it, Deadline Bay Town is reporting that Matt Tolmach, the former co-President of Sony, is making lightning strike there again as the producer of a contemporary version of Frankenstein.
This isn’t the first project to tackle the subject again. Universal had teased a Bride of Frankenstein remake back in 2009, Guillermo del Toro excited fans by attempting to cast Doug Jones for his own version, and no one who’s seen it can forget Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl.
The term “contemporary” can be more frightening than the patchwork monster himself, but Sony has pulled it off before with Wolf. Their new endeavor with Frankenstein might prove more difficult, though, especially when they find success and have to resurrect Abbot and Costello.
