Dean Koontz's "Frankenstein" Gets Another Chance

Author Dean Koontz is a prolific and highly successful suspense novelist, but has fared less well in movie adaptations. When he originally wrote the treatment with Kevin J. Anderson for a sequel to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, it was as a mini-series for the USA Network. Unfortunately, Koontz left the project due to creative differences, and the film was produced without his name. Koontz ultimately went on to write a trilogy of novels based on his ideas. Now Koontz is getting a rare second chance. The film rights for Dean Koontz's Frankenstein: Prodigal Son have been sold to 1019 Entertainment with the intention of producing an original feature film. Koontz is confident of the project; here's hoping they do him justice.

Do you think this project will work out? Let us know in the comments.


  1. Any novel translation to movie is a crap shoot, but if Koontz is actively involved in this one, it has a chance.

  2. I don't know how to feel about this one. It's a compelling story and great concept, but maybe it just doesn't work as a movie. Even the graphic novel is kind of lame.
