New Monster on the Way in UK

Britain's ITV1 has commissioned Impossible Pictures to create a 21st-century Frankenstein, which seems to mean in part that Dr. Frankenstein's a girl -- this according to a recent post on Digital Spy.

In a forthcoming two-hour special, "Frankenstein takes on a terrifying new dimension," says deputy controller of drama (how'd you like that job title?) Sally Haines. Presumably she speaks of the monster, not the lab-coated Victoria Frankenstein.

"Impossible's experience with creating CGI[computer-generated imagery] monsters has enabled us to bring to life Shelley's creation as never seen before," she promises.

A computer-generated monster -- that's almost Disney. Can't wait to see his yellow speculative eyes.
