Shawn Levy was originally attached to direct, although insiders claim the filmmaker and studio had different visions for the project. Shawn Levy wanted a big-budget affair, while the studio wanted to cut costs.
We reported last July that Max Landis (Chronicle) signed on to write the screenplay. Insiders claim the story will be a revisionist take on Mary Shelley's classic novel, with a sci-fi twist. The story will also tackle themes such as friendship and redemption.
No production schedule was given at this time.
