While Universal Studios’s Dark Universe seems to be in limbo after their reboot of The Mummy didn’t receive the love the studio expected, but that doesn’t mean that no one else can’t take a stab at our favorite classic monster tales.
Variety is reporting that the UK series ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ will be coming to the US via Netflix. While the series has only released six episodes to date the deal gives Netflix the chance to expand the show.
Set in London in 1827, the re-imagining of Mary Shelly’s beloved novel stars ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Sean Bean as John Marlott, a war veteran, and policeman, as he investigates a corpse, found made from the parts of children. Intangled in the case are established figures and demonic forces.
