Incoming Chills

After Cloverfield and Let Me In, we are excited by any horror project director, Matt Reeves is connected to. And we have just learned that the director is taking on yet another monster movie: a Frankenstein prequel.

Reeves will be adapting Kenneth Oppel’s book, This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein. A Dr. Frankenstein prequel book

Kenneth Oppel’s not-yet-released novel “This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein” tells the story of how young Victor set out on a quest to create the Elixir of Life and save his gravely-ill twin brother, Konrad. Victor not only grows closer to his best friend Elizabeth along the way, he also become increasingly obsessed with alchemy – and the idea of defeating the incurable disease that is death.

Dark Endeavor will be scripted by Jacob Estes, who also penned the horror flick Mean Creek and this year’s Sundance Film Festival entry, The Details. Whether Reeves plans to move ahead next with either this project or one of the other two adaptations he’s become associated with recently is not yet clear.
