Sony is looking to erect a modern day take on Mary Shelley's classic monster tale Frankenstein. According to Deadline, Sony ex-co-president-turned-producer Matthew Tolmach will make this his first project since leaving his upper management position earlier this year to focus more on the production side of things.

Craig Fernandez wrote the screenplay, which will move Dr. Frankenstein and his iconic monster into contemporary times. Not much else was released about the proposed story. There are currently two other Frankenstein movies in development at this time, one from Guillermo del Toro and another from novelist Dean R. Koontz.

It isn't clear when Matthew Tolmach's Frankenstein will go into production. We will be sure to keep you updated as that information is announced.
