When we recently interviewed director Shawn Levy about his new robot boxing movie Real Steel, we had to ask him about about a rather conspicuous genre movie that his IMDB page says he's rumored to be directing and currently developing. Known only as Untitled Frankenstein Project, it makes a genre fan's mind race with the possibilities, both good and bad. Rather than speculate, check out what he had to say about it:

"It’s an amazing script and, yes, I am attached to direct it. That’s true, and if I can get the right pairing of two young guys I’ll make it. It’s a radical retelling of the legend, and the reason that the casting is so critical is that, though it is still very much a monster movie and a genre piece, it really focuses on the friendship and relationship and betrayals between Victor Frankenstein and Igor, who is at once his friend and assistant, all set against this discovery of a science that might change human science forever. So if I can cast it to my liking I will be making it. If I make it I’m gonna make it next year."

How do you feel about the movie's focus on the relationship between the Doc and Igor, and Levy's involvement as director? Let us know.
