[Movies] Ruthless Pictures To Release Frankenstein vs The Mummy Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.29.2013
The epic battle has begun...
Shock Till You Drop reports that Jesse Baget's Ruthless Pictures is preparing to release Frankenstein vs The Mummy, which will begin shooting at the end of the year. Damien Leone will write and direct. He previously worked on All Hallows' Eve and Mischief Night.
Here's a synopsis: The story revolves around the mummy of a cursed pharaoh and a reanimated corpse that terrorize a medical university. Only an Egyptologist and a college professor, the deranged Dr. Frankenstein, may be able to stop the creatures before it's too late.
Leone said: "These are two of the most iconic characters in horror history, and I don't believe in shortchanging fans or making a mockery of the subject matter. I've approached the material in a serious manner and I intend to make a very dark and graphic film. The story will primarily follow Dr. Frankenstein and his creation but the cursed pharaoh will ultimately work his way into their lives resulting in one of the most epic horror showdowns ever."
Baget added: "I'm excited to be working with Damien again, I was thrilled with his work on All Hallows' Eve, and I'm positive his take on Frankenstein and the Mummy is going to be quite unique… and completely disturbing!"
Ruthless Pictures is also working on the horror film Day of the Mummy, directed by Johnny Tabor.
