Producer of the newest horror genre critic success, The Invisible Man has eyes for bringing another monster to the screen. Jason Blum says he’d be more than interested to do a Frankenstein film.
In an interview with The Evolution of Horror producer Blum expressed his interest in the creation:
“I’d love to do Frankenstein. I’ve tasked our filmmakers with trying to figure out just straight Frankenstein,”
“Again, I don’t know if someone else is doing it, I don’t know anything about it, but I would love to try, and I’m waiting for the great idea.”
Blum uses his most recent success as a pointer to add weight the obviously good idea saying:
“The Invisible Man, I agree, the best ideas feel like, ‘My gosh, it’s so obvious — why didn’t that happen before?’ If we could come up with something as good for Frankenstein, I’d love to try that.”
Sounds like thrift shopping but in film. The story of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein follows the efforts of young upstart scientist Victor Frankenstein as he attempts to create life via an unorthodox science experiment.
There’s been mention of Universal Studios investing into a Bride of Frankenstein movie but no other word on that project has been announced. With the current hault in horror, The Invisible Man has performed so exponentially well in the Box Office another Jason Blum production shouldn’t cause the genre any more wreckage.
The Invisible Man is maintaining a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes since it’s release exactly a week ago.
