All I had to hear was "classic monsters," "film noir," and "comic book" before I was interested. Yep, that's all it takes, filmmakers ... but this one sounds like it could be very fun indeed. Looks like Kevin Grevioux, one of the co-creators of the whole crazyUnderworldseries, is tackling a new project that will make the Vamps vs. Lycans trilogy look like a rainy day at the zoo. Sources indicate that the project "brings back many beloved classic monsters including Frankenstein's Monster, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Invisible Man, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde plus many more, in a re-imagined contemporary setting."

The project is called I, Frankenstein, and will be based on Grevioux's upcoming comic book of the same name. On board to direct is Rise of the Lycans helmer Patrick Tatopoulos, and producers include Chris Patton and Robert Sanchez of Death Ray Films, as well as our old pal Ryan "STD" Turek! Obviously we're in the (very) early stages of this multi-medium monster mania, but for a bit more on the concept, the characters, and some nifty character images, check out the reports at FEARnet, Shock, and Dread.

But of course this thing could go either way. It could be the horror equivalent of Hellboy and The Dirty Dozen Meet The Maltese Falcon ... or it could be Van Helsing vs. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And nobody wants that. Obviously. What say you?
