Last seen in to two very different roles, one saw him in GI Joe mode battling some supreme life forms known as aliens in Tinseltown and the other as a bereaved man having a life crisis opposite Ms. Kidman.
Word is in that he has been chosen to be the star of the latest graphic novel to make it from the geeks bedroom floor to the big screen, I, Frankenstein. Frankenstein I hear you cry, another version, hasn’t Mary Shelley had enough of rolling in her grave? Apparently not, Eckhart’s set to play Adam, Franksteins’ monster who has survived until present day. There’s some sort of gang warfare kicking off between some immortal clans and he’s right in the middle of the chaos. Standard then.
Writer/director Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow, When The War Began), said:
“Mary Shelley’s story is about the creation of the first human being. This is the story about that being becoming human.”
Lionsgate’s co-COO and Motion Picture Group President Joe Drake said:
“This story is all about what it means to be human, and there could be no more achingly human performance than the one Aaron gave in our own Rabbit Hole. We are so excited to see what he will bring to this role.”
They all seem to be excited, we expect Aaron is, so figure we should be too, yay for new slants on classics. Hmmm we’ll get back to you on that one…
