Bill Nighy may once again be taking on the role of a villain in a genre property launched from the imagination of writer Kevin Grevioux. Variety reports the Underworld star---co-written by author Grevioux---is in talks to become the villain in I, Frankenstein. The upcoming adventure is based on the comic series by Kevin, with the production being led by director Stuart Beattie. If Nighy boards the project, he would be joining Aaron Eckhart and Socratis Otto.

Plot Concept: "I, Frankenstein" is a modern-day epic: Frankenstein's creature, Adam (Eckhart), has survived to present day due to a genetic quirk in his creation. Making his way to a dark, gothic metropolis, he finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans. Nighy is looking to play a demon Prince while Socratis Otto signed to be his henchman.

I, Frankenstein strikes theaters on February 22, 2013.

That's cool. I haven't read this but it sounds interesting to me. For some reason I like seeing this cat Grevioux have succes. Who would've thought that he was the big bad lycan in Underworld. I know he wrote a bit for Marvel but good seeing more of his stuff on screen.

I hope this gets made before the market gets flooded with all the different Frankenstein stories supposedly being made into film. Feb 2013 isn't that far off and I haven't heard any release dates for the other Frankies

 Rats.  I just had to check my spelling and was crushed to realize that the villain in the upcoming I Frankenstein will not in fact be "The Science Guy".  Now that would be a terrific casting choice.  It's about time that someone made an educational piece about fun ways for 6th graders to re-animate the dead.
