Shawn Levy to Direct ‘Frankenstein’ Before ‘Fantastic Voyage’

Posted by at 11:05 am on August 26, 2011

The forthcoming 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage at 20th Century Fox has hit a bit of a snag because director Shawn Levy is looking to get a big A-list star on board to lead the project, while the studio doesn’t necessarily think they need that big of a star on board. Levy has recently set a meeting with Will Smith about the project, but if he doesn’t join, and another comparable star can’t be found, then Levy will do something else. That seems to be more likely now as Deadline is reporting Levy will instead take on a new adaptation of Frankenstein scripted by Max Landis (son of John Landis) also set up at Fox.

Conversations are underway with Levy to have the director direct the film this winter or next spring. Of course, the project is on the fast track in order to beat several other Frankenstein-centric films currently in the works.
