Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

It’s being reported that 1019 Entertainment’s Ralph Winter and Terry Botwick are developing a modernized re-telling of the tale of Frankenstein based on the series of books by acclaimed author Dean Koontz.

The hope is that a new franchise can be born. It will be set in modern New Orleans, where a successful businessman has secretly created a super-human monster named Deucalion. A couple of detectives meet come face-to-face with the monster while investigating a murder one day, and when they investigate a little further, they are lead to a world of manufactured human beings.

Koontz’s first novel in the series is called Frankenstein: Prodigal Son, and was followed by two more books. It has also recently been adapted into a graphic novel format.

Here is a synopsis for his books.

Every city has secrets. But none as terrible as this. His name is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who’s traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself. Detective Carson O’Connor is cool, cynical, and every bit as tough as she looks. Her partner Michael Maddison would back her up all the way to Hell itself–and that just may be where this case ends up. For the no-nonsense O’Connor is suddenly talking about an ages-old conspiracy, a near immortal race of beings, and killers that are more—and less—than human. Soon it will be clear that as crazy as she sounds, the truth is even more ominous. For their quarry isn’t merely a homicidal maniac—but his deranged maker.

Winter was strongly involved with 20th Century Fox before forming 1019 Entertainment with Botwick. He helped producer all three X-Men films, including X-Men Origins: Wolverine; they also produced both Fantastic Four movies, and the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth installments of the older Star Trek movies.
