Deadline reports that Yvonne Strahovski, star of NBC’s Chuck, has been cast in I, Frankenstein. The movie is being directed by Stuart Beattie, who is best known as a writer of the first Pirates of the Caribbean film, as well as Collateral and G.I. Joe. Aaron Eckhart (Battle Los Angeles) and Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings) are also set to star.
The film is based on Kevin Grevioux’s graphic novel, and follows Dr. Frankenstein’s monster (Eckhart), who has survived to modern times and goes by the name Adam. Adam travels to a gothic metropolis, where he is caught up in a battle between two immortal clans. Strahovski will play his love interest, a scientist working on reanimating the dead.
I, Frankenstein is being filmed in Australia, and is due to be released on February 22, 2013.
