You can't keep a good monster down.

The Frankenstein monster and Dracula (and his vampire variations) used to be the main staples of the horror film market (in particular the Hammer Films variety), but lately the tall guy with electrodes in his neck has taken a back seat to more blood hungry types. All that's about to change with seven -- count 'em seven -- Frankenstein projects floating around Hollywood. Now add another -- one that may be directed by comedy maven Shawn Levy.

Levy, coming off the Hugh Jackman-starrer 'Real Steel,' which will be released Oct. 7, had been talking to Fox about next helming the studio's 'Fantastic Voyage' redo, but he's had difficulty getting some of the stars he wanted for the film (Will Smith was one of them) and the production has bogged down. Instead, according to Deadline, it looks like Levy will helm Fox's version of Frankenstein, which is scripted by Max Landis (John's son).
