At one point,   Patrick Tatopoulos (UNDERWORLD RISE OF THE LYCANS) was set to direct—he apparently did the design work on the graphic novel’s creatures. In the Darkstorm comics, Frankenstein’s monster “Adam” becomes gun-toting  present-day adversary to classic monsters out to menace the world, such as Dracula, The Werewolf, The Invisible Man, et al.

Kevin Grevioux remains on the project as an executive producer.

 Lionsgate will distribute the film in the United States, aiming for a February 22nd, 2013 release date.
