director Timur Bekmambetov has been attached to direct an adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's novel 'Casebook of Victor Frankenstein'. The book is based on the original Mary Shelley classic but the story is transferred to London instead. In the book medical student Victor Frankenstein re-animates the body of a deceased acquaintance. Somewhat disturbed by his creation he abondons it at leaves it to fend for itself. Confused and angry, the creation wreaks havoc.
So the basis of the story is pretty much the same as the original, but Ackroyd adds another dimension by weaving Lord Byron and Mr and Mrs Shelley into the narrative as supporting characters. He even includes the famous meeting in which Byron challenged Mary Shelley to write a ghost story, the result of which was of course 'Frankenstein'. I'm guessing there won't be many opportunities in the film for bullet bending though.
