Sherlock Vs Frankenstein

The past few years we have seen a lot of crossovers from various franchises and this time we see have one of the strangest ones yet but somehow I cannot believe that no one has done this before.

Sherlock Holmes vs. Frankenstein will be directed by French director Gautier Cazenave and will centre around Holmes and Doctor Watson travelling to the village of Darmstadt in Germany to investigate strange goings on.

In an inspired bit of casting, Shane Briant, once Peter Cushing’s assistant in Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974), Hammer’s last Frankenstein film, will return to the saga as the Burgomeister. Also appearing is actor Clement von Franckenstein — the real Baron Frankenstein — cast as… Baron Frankenstein!

The atmospheric poster was created by Gil Jouin who collaborated for over 15 years with his father, Michel Jouin, famous for his film poster work on the French release of such titles as Return of the Jedi and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Gil Jouin’s solo work has also been celebrated, winning the Best Film Poster Cesar — the French Oscar — for the film Cinema Paradiso in 1990.

Personally I cannot wait for this just for originality factor.
