Frankenstein: Twilight in Disguise


Summit Entertainment acquired the screen rights for This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein.  It’s about young Victor Frankenstein’s quest to save his brother Konrad with the help of his friend Elizabeth.  Don’t be fooled: it’s just another attempt to replicate Twilight.  Included in its description on Deadline: “There are betrayals along the way and a love triangle between Victor, Elizabeth and Konrad,” blah, blah, blah.  Right, just like Twilight’s Edward-Bella-Jacob triangle.  Only this time, they stayed within the lore of one monster story.  Even the cover reeks of Edward Cullen:

If things didn’t work out, they could have pitched it to Inception’s Warner Bros.’s studio: it’s an origin story within an origin story.
