This has potential and is kind of like a Monster Squad in reverse.
Benderspink has optioned the script Monster X from Monsterfoot Productions, with the project based on an original idea by Monsterfoot principal Ahmet Zappa (son of Frank Zappa).
The basic idea is that 10 classic monsters team up to face an even greater threat against humanity. Similar things have been done before on film, in comics and literature, but I don’t think there have ever been that many monsters all together.
Monsters mentioned so far include Dracula, Frankenstein’s creature and Mr. Hyde. I imagine there will be a Mummy, a Black Lagoon style sea creature and a Werewolf in the mix. What else could there be?
According to THR Zappa co-wrote the initial script. The plan is to further develop the screenplay before taking it out to buyers.
Unless Universal are involved in some way, don’t expect to see the monsters looking like the classic types from the creature features.
The project has definite potential. We shall have to wait and see what develops.
