Harvey Dent is dead. Long live... Frankenstein?
Just because his ill-fated Assistant District Attorney died at the hands of — well, exactly whose hands remains a matter of debate I suppose, but the hands of somebody in "The Dark Knight," doesn't mean that Aaron Eckhart's days of working in the comic book movie world are behind him. Not by a longshot.
Indeed, Bruce Campbell's chief rival for the annual Greatest Chin in Hollywood award is fully submerged in the paneled pool once again with "I, Frankenstein," based on the comic book by "Underworld" actor Kevin Grevioux. The film has been shooting in Australia for some time now, and now we've got a first look at Eckhart in full Frankenstein makeup on the set of director Stuart Beattie's new flick.

Aaron Eckhart is someone who I am always happy to see working. No matter what material he's working with, he always seems like he gives 100 percent to his work and is a complete professional. Therefore when Lionsgate announced that Eckhart would be their star in Stuart Beattie's "I, Frankenstein," adapted from Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel, I was pleased as punch.
When MTV News caught up with Eckhart recently during the press day for his latest film, "The Rum Diary," I asked him to give us a tease about what we can expect from him and the film.
Aaron Eckhart is going to become a monster once again in Stuart Beattie's "I, Frankenstein." He will be playing Frankenstein's creature, Adam, in the adaptation of Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel.
"I, Frankenstein" has been described as a modern take on Mary Shelly's classic tale. The story follows Adam after he has survived to the present day, and he finds himself caught in a centuries old war between two immortal clans.
When Grevioux was previously talking about the actor he wanted to play Adam, he retrospectively described Eckhart to the letter.
Kevin Grevioux is a jack of many trades. The screenwriter and actor from the "Underworld" films, Grevioux is also a comic book writer on titles such as "Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel." Now, his latest "monster" of a comic book series is getting the film treatment.
Grevioux tells Shock Till You Drop that he'll be adapting his own upcoming Darkstorm Comics series "I, Frankenstein" into a big-screen adventure with "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" director Patrick Tatopoulos behind the lens. Read More...
