Classic horror battles resurrected! Jesse Baget’s Ruthless Pictures is moving forward on a new pictures that pits two famous monsters against one another.
Frankenstein vs. The Mummy begins shooting at the end of this year. Damien Leone will write and direct. Leone previously teamed with Ruthless on this week’s releases All Hallows’ Eve and Mischief Night.
The story revolves around the mummy of a cursed pharaoh and a reanimated corpse that terrorize a medical university. Only an Egyptologist and a college professor, the deranged Dr. Frankenstein, may be able to stop the creatures before it’s too late.
“These are two of the most iconic characters in horror history,” Leone says, “and I don’t believe in shortchanging fans or making a mockery of the subject matter. I’ve approached the material in a serious manner and I intend to make a very dark and graphic film. The story will primarily follow Dr. Frankenstein and his creation but the cursed pharaoh will ultimately work his way into their lives resulting in one of the most epic horror showdowns ever.”
Baget had this to say of the project, “I’m excited to be working with Damien again, I was thrilled with his work on All Hallows’ Eve, and I’m positive his take on Frankenstein and the Mummy is going to be quite unique… and completely disturbing!”
Ruthless Pictures is currently in production on the horror-adventure Day of the Mummy directed by Johnny Tabor.
