‘Dark Knight’ star Aaron Eckhart talks ‘I Frankenstein,’ the action and the footage he’s seen

“Well I’ve looped [dialogue] for it, but what I saw was devoid of CGI. I think segments were even missing, so I’m gonna be totally surprised by it. It’s gonna be interesting.”

Eckhart impressed fans as Harvey Dent/Two-face in Dark Knight and says he’s excited about playing The Monster.

“Oh yeah, you take a modern tale of the monster of Frankenstein, put Kali sticks in his hands, and then you put gargoyles and demons and good and evil in it … and we’re talking about a kick-ass movie. We worked really hard on it. It’s got a lot of action. I did all the fighting myself, 100%, pretty much except for one fall, so I’m really proud of that.”

The film is inspired by a comic book written by Kevin Grevioux, the co-creator of the “Underworld” franchise, which is essentially a sequel to the Mary Shelley classic following the monster who does not perish.

Back in 2011 when Eckhart signed on, he described Frankenstein as “an intelligent, evolved man” – check out those comments here

Olympus Has Fallen, currently in theaters also stars Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster, Dylan McDermott, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, and Rick Yune.
