Aaron Eckhart To Star As Frankenstein In 'I, Frankenstein'

Aaron Eckhart will star in a Frankenstein movie set in the present day called "I, Frankenstein," according to Variety. The script is based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux, who also created the vampire franchise, "Underworld," and was written and is set to be directed by Stuart Beattie. Eckhart plays an ancient "Frankenstein creature" named Adam (get it?) who's survived into modern times because of a genetic quirk. He lands up in a "dark, gothic" metropolis, where he gets caught up in a war between two immortal clans. Alternate title: "Barack Obama: Ascension To The Presidency."
