Matt Reeves on "This Dark Endeavor" Frankenstein Movie

Matt Reeves on "This Dark Endeavor" Frankenstein MovieSubmit Comment
Last month it was revealed that Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Cloverfield) has signed on to direct "This Dark Endeavor," based on a novel by Kenneth Oppel about a young Victor Frankenstein. FearNet has now caught up with the helmer to get a few more details.

"[Victor Frankenstein is] a young man, he's about fifteen, sixteen years old. It's not [set in] present day," said Reeves. "It's the story of what formed him psychologically to put him on that path, to become God, to create life. It's actually a very, very sad, painful story, but a wonderful adventure and love story too. In many ways, like 'Let Me In,' [it's] a coming of age story, but one that sort of ends up being the creation myth for one of the great stories of our time."

When asked if the film will have horror elements to it, Reeves replied: "Yeah, absolutely. It doesn't actually get as far as the Monster, but the movie sort of hints at how these things came about."

He also spoke about another project he's working on, which is based on Ray Nelson's "Eight O'Clock in the Morning." He said: "[It] was actually the source material for John Carpenter's 'They Live.' But it won't have anything to do with the original 'They Live.'"

Don't care for Frankenstein anything, and Matt Reeves isn't much without Abrams behind him, it seems.

If Del Toro or Jackson did a faithful solid of Shellys book you might. The Kenny B version is so far off the path its unreal.

Never read it. If del Toro did it, you know it would look right. This just has Young Hannibal Lector written all over it.
