Filmmaker Richard Raaphorst is in post-production on his highly anticipated Frankenstein’s Army and he’ll be speaking to us and other member of the press about his production at the San Diego Comic-Con this week. To spread the word about the film, a series of propaganda posters and Raaphorst used his Twitter account to reveal the first poster.
The image features the film’s “zombots” and Viktor Frankenstein, as played by Karl Roden. Dark Sky Films will release the project in 2013. Head inside for a look!
Frankenstein’s Army takes place toward the end of World War II, as Russian soldiers push into eastern Germany and stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein’s work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades – a desperate Hitler’s last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.
