We got some bad and puzzling news for those looking forward to 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of Frankenstein. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that FOX will be pushing the film back to January 2015. Why? So it won’t compete with Legendary’s Dracula Untold starring Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper.
“Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy as Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe as Igor, was to have opened Oct. 17, 2014, two weeks after Dracula Untold hits theaters on Oct. 3. Now, Frankenstein won't open until Jan. 16, 2015”.
Competition with the Legendary picture is probably not the reason for the film leaving October. David Fincher’s Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, has been slated for Oct. 3rd and the animated family film Book of Life (by Guillermo del Toro) is now on Oct. 17th. It looks like the overcrowding of FOX pictures is more the reason. However, does it seem like FOX has no clue as this film is about Frankenstein and is perfect for October? Perhaps Frankenstein isn’t going so well, production wise.
