Radio Silence Plan Reawakening
More found footage, another Frankenstein

Radio Silence Plan Reawakening

They may not be on your radar yet, but the collective directing entity known as Radio Silence have scored some critical support with their segment of the throwback horror anthology V/H/S. A fully-fledged feature is a given as their next project, and they've opted for The Reawakening, tapping into the current vogue for found-footage horror, and Frankenstein projects.

Details are scarce, but the directing quartet - Matt Bettenelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez and Chad Villella - are currently negotiating with Lionsgate to bring Luke Dawson's script to the screen. Dawson previously wrote the US remake of Shutter, and The Reawakening is currently being described as a cross between Mary Shelley's 1818 masterpiece and Flatliners. Bloody Disgusting have helpfully rounded up a couple of Radio Silence's fun Prank Fail shorts, if you're interested in a taste of what they've made before.

There are loads of incarnations of Frankenstein's monster rattling around at the moment. Guillermo Del Toro has long been planning one; there's Shawn Levy and Max Landis' version; an adaptation of Peter Ackroyd's The Casebook Of Victor Frankenstein; one at Slasher Films; one involving Elvis... We're tempted to guess that they were all spurred into action by Danny Boyle's stage version a little while ago.

How many of those will actually see the light of day is anyone's guess. First out of the gate though, and currently shooting, is Stuart Beattie's monster-in-the-future I, Frankenstein, based on Kevin Grevoux's comic, and starring Aaron Eckhart. Some pap shots recently sneaked online, so the next creature we see should be this one...
