Sean Bean to Star in ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’

Sean Bean 200Sean Bean, an actor who has appeared in multiple book adaptations such as Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring movie and the Game of Thrones HBO series, will star in a new six-part crime show called The Frankenstein Chronicles.

Bean (pictured, via) will play the main protagonist, Inspector John Marlott. Production is set to take place in Northern Ireland starting in January. The story was inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Follow this link to download a free digital copy of the book.

Here’s more from Deadline: “Set in 1827 London, the drama begins when Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel recruits Marlott after a successful operation by Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers. As Marlott stands on the water’s edge contemplating the arrests, he makes a shocking discovery: A corpse washed up on the shore is not what it seems at first glance. Instead, it’s a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form. The mutilated child-like body leaves an indelible impression on Marlott who is tasked by Peel with tracking the perpetrator of this heinous crime.”

‘Mirror, Mirror’ Trailer Features Evil Queen Julia Roberts

Relativity Media has released the trailer for Mirror, Mirror, a “darkly comedic” film adaptation of the classic fairy tale Snow White. We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think?

Here’s more from Deadline: “Mirror Mirror, described as a comedy action adventure that stars Lily Collins, Armie Hammer, Julia Roberts, Nathan Lane and Sean Bean, will be released March 16, 2012. That puts it well ahead of Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, which opens June 1 and looks more like The Lord of the Rings than a light fairy tale.”

Snow White and the Huntsman features Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart and Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth in the title roles. Follow this link to watch the trailer for that film. As we previously noted, Oscar winner Charlize Theron plays the Evil Queen.
