First photo of Dark Knight star Aaron Eckhart in ‘I,Frankenstein’

Movie fans need to ready themselves for another Frankenstein adaptation. This time Adam Frankenstein, played by Aaron Eckhart, is a heroic protagonist set in present day and the Frankenstein monster.

I-Frankenstein-Comic-Book coverThe 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.

Eckart, starred as Harvey Dent aka Two-Face in Dark Knight, again dons plenty of facial make-up to created Adam Frankenstein’s disfigured countenance.  From the “I, Frankenstein” Facebook page comes a photo of the Battle: Los Angeles star.

The monster has a stitched face but no bolts on the side of the neck, appearing far more normal than other Hollywood incarnations.

The film also stars Bill Nighy, Socratis Otto, Yvonne Strahovski and Miranda Otto.

The premise of I, Frankenstein is that the monster did not commit suicide following the death of his creator. The creature, Adam, has survived on through to an alternate version of the present, where he is the center and target of two warring clans.

Nighy is the main villain with Socratis Otto, his “right hand man” and Miranda Otto the Queen of the gargoyles trying to help Frankenstein.

I, Frankenstein comes to theaters February 22, 2013.
