Helmed by Bernard Rose, still best known for Candyman, this new take on Frankenstein explores the classic tale from the perspective of the monster rather than the scientist – recapturing what was so great about Mary Shelley’s original story, taking the themes she wrote about and giving them a very modern spin. So modern in fact that I’m positive it’s the first, and only time, we’ve been presented with a 3D-printed protagonist! It may sound crazy but the idea, given recent advances in the technology (only last week it was announced that fully working prosthetics for amputee’s can be 3D printed) is not that far-fetched.

During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb has offered up a few words on the new series, which sees Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) starring as the eponymous superhero-turned-private eye, and former Doctor Who star David Tennant as the main villain Kilgrave, a.k.a. The Purple Man.

With Chloë Moretz in place as the lead in Brain On Fire – taking over from a suddenly busy Dakota Fanning – the rest of the cast is being announced. Richard Armitage and Carrie-Anne Moss are the latest recruits. Brain On Fire has been adapted from Susannah Cahalan’s memoir, which was subtitled My Month Of Madness. The book chronicles Cahalan’s real-life experiences being diagnosed with a mystery illness that left her labelled psychotic, violent, and a dangerous flight risk. She woke up alone in a hospital room confined to the bed, unable to speak or move and with no memory of what happened. In the maelstrom, she’d lost everything: a promising newspaper career and her first serious relationship, and it took an intuitive doctor, a lot of strength and the support of her family to get through it.And now we know who will be making up the key components of that family, »

And when people get a hold of what David Tennant is doing as Killgrave… There’s going to »
