Frankenstein has been adapted to film multiple times, but this time it’ll be taken in a new direction. Starring Aaron Eckhart comes I, Frankenstein, written and directed by Stuart Beattie and based on the graphic novel by Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux.

Eckhart will portray Frankenstein’s creature named Adam, who ages slowly and finds himself in the present day. He arrives in a gothic metropolis and stumbles upon a centuries old war between two immortal clans.

Supposedly the movie will essentially deal with Adam gaining his humanity.

It’s an interesting take on the character, although I’m not sure how I feel about the immortal clans part of the plot.

I, Frankenstein is due for release February 22, 2013.
