Frankenstein lives and is sporting a Humphrey Bogart trench coat and Twilight hairdo in concept art by veteran artist Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Stargate, Independence Day, I Am Legend) for I, Frankenstein.
I, Frankenstein, based on Kevin Grevioux’s Darkstorm Studios graphic novel, "is a contemporary fantasy thriller in which the original monster of Victor Frankenstein stands between the human race and an uprising of supernatural creatures determined to overthrow the world."
It was announced yesterday that Screenwriter Stuart Beattie (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Collateral, Australia) will taking over the writing and directing of I, Frankenstein.
Last year Lakeshore had announced that Tatopoulos would direct the film and he said “It is a privilege to be given the chance to direct this highly visual piece. Kevin Grevioux has created something truly special with I, Frankenstein and I couldn’t dream of a better team than my friends at Lakeshore to make this project happen.”
Here are some designs he completed in 2009. Click on the images below for the hi-res versions.

It's a shame he won't be directing anymore. I hope his moody designs will still make it to the big screen.
Shooting is expected to start this fall.
