Goldberg probes new ‘Frankenstein’

Thesp joins Posey as part of monster-hunting duo

NEW YORK — Adam Goldberg has inked to star in the USA drama “Frankenstein.”

Thesp will portray an investigator in the update of the Mary Shelley classic. He stars opposite Parker Posey as his crime-fighting partner.

Skein centers on the duo as they unravel the myth of Frankenstein through a seemingly standard homicide investigation. Meanwhile, doctor Victor Frankenstein and his creature reside in present-day Seattle.

Cabler greenlit production on “Frankenstein” earlier this year, ordering a two-hour pilot and four scripts for the project (Daily Variety, Jan. 21).

Casting is still under way for Victor and the creature.

Exec producers are Martin Scorsese, author Dean Koontz and Flame TV topper Tony Krantz. Marcus Nispel (“Texas Chainsaw Massacre”) is set to direct from a script by Koontz.

Lions Gate Television is onboard to produce in association with Flame TV.

Production is scheduled to begin next month in Toronto for a premiere in the fall.

Goldberg helmed indie feature “I Love Your Work” and is set to star in an untitled CBS/Warner Bros. pilot opposite Aisha Tyler.
