Paul McGuigan In Talks To Direct Fox’s Frankenstein Project

Fox’s untitled Frankenstein project is moving as the studio has entered into talks with director Paul McGuigan to helm their in-development project based on Mary Shelley’s classic horror novel.

The script for the proposed film is by Chronicle writer Max Landis.

Although Fox has been working on their Frankenstein project for a while, the studio has apparently recently made the film a priority, looking to beat the other Frankenstein related projects in development into theaters. Last fall, Shawn Levy had expressed interest but a solid commitment to the project never materialized.

Although he has the films Lucky Number Slevin and Push to his credit, NcGuigan’s most recent work was three feature-length episodes of the BBC’s popular Sherlock series starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
