Last week, we told you that Shawn Levy was having some trouble casting Twentieth Century Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Voyage remake and that if he couldn’t get the cast he wanted, he would be walking off the film. One of those film’s that Levy may defect to another Fox film, a new adaption of Frankenstein written by World War Z author Max Brooks.

Deadline is reporting that the studio is hot to get the film into production as soon as possible and if they can’t placate Levy on the casting issues for Fantastic Voyage, offering him a job on this film would be a way to keep the director working while they try to iron out their differences. The studio reportedly would like to get this film into production by the winter in order to beat out a number of other projects based on Mary Shelly’s now public domain novel that are in development at other studios.
