It is so hard to write about the latest graphic novels headed to the big screen. There are many I haven't read, and most of them sound really cool. I would be broke if I bought them all, and so I must ask you to forgive me if I can't write as authoritatively as I wish to on a book.

With that said, Variety announced that Holding Pictures has snagged the rights to Steve Niles' graphic novel Wake the Dead, a modern retelling of Frankenstein. Jay Russell is set to direct, and James V. Hart is writing the screenplay. The combination of Holding Pictures' head David Lyons, Russell, and Hart has recently been known for family fare like The Water Horse and Tuck Everlasting, so this hardly seems like a natural fit.
