I, Frankenstein Heads to Victoria

Already planned for an Australia-based production, Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein has settled on a Victoria-based shoot, Encore Magazine reports.

Set to begin filming in January, the film tells the modern-day tale of Dr. Frankenstein’s creature, Adam, who nearly centuries after his “birth”, has found himself in a gothic city, caught up in a war between two immortal clans. Though based on the comic by Kevin Grevioux, leading man Aaron Eckhart recently explained to SuperHeroHype that Mary Shelley’s original novel is where he’s currently focusing his attention to build the character.

The production is expected to spend $37 million on local Australian cast and crew and will hit theaters on February 22, 2013.
