And so he shall!
A contemporary retelling of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is in the works, based on Steven Niles's graphic novel Wake the Dead. The flick is being produced by Slash (you read that right) and directed by Jay Russell and as of today, the picture has landed its lead: Haley Joel Osment.
Haley will play Victor Franklin, a college student who wants to try his hand and bringing people back from the dead. He succeeds, but he's not too happy with the results, if you know what we mean! With its star in place, the movie will go into production this fall. No release date has been announced yet.
Wow. Haley Joel! You're a big kid now … and you're making the same kind of movies. Way to stay consistent!
