- In today’s second piece of Frankenstein-related news: WedgeWorks has picked up Lives of the Monster Dogs, a “postmodern Frankenstein-style novel” by Kirsten Bakis about a group of dogs genetically engineered to walk and “use voice boxes to communicate.” (And, undoubtedly, do this?) Chris Wedge (Ice Age) will write the screenplay with Adam Kline. [THR]
- Matthew Lillard and Jon Polito have been tapped to appear in the indie film From the Head. The feature is inspired by writer-director George Griffith’s experience working as a New York City strip club bathroom attendant. [Variety]
