Stunning Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski is probably best known for her role as Sarah Walker in Chuck, although she also recently appeared in the Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert DeNiro starring Killer Elite. sHe has now landed herself a part in Lionsgate’s upcoming horror flick I, Frankenstein alongside the already cast Aaron Eckhart. Eckhart has been cast as Adam Frankenstein, and Strahovski is cast to play his love interest.
Bill Nighy and fellow Australian actor Soctratis Otto have also been approached to star in the film based on the graphic novel written by Kevin Grevioux (Underworld). Stuart Beattie os directing from his own script, and the film is scheduled for a February 2013 release. Filming is expected to begin in January in Australia.
In the film Eckhart plays Adam, Frankenstein’s creation and he is being hunted by Demons who want to learn the secret of his creation so they can build an army of the undead, recreated in the same way. Nighy will hopefully be playing a Demon Prince.
More as it happens.
