Fox’s The Frankenstein Code gets a new name…

Fox’s The Frankenstein Code is not dead and has now been renamed Lookinglass. Nope, we don’t know why either.

Anyway the basic premise is as follows:

“Lookinglass is about an old sheriff (Philip Baker Hall) who’s cut down by bad cops. But then two young scientists give him another go at life with a younger, Kazinsky body with superhero-like powers.”

Frankenstein was made from the corpses of five or more men, patched together to create a new being. This being was both living and dead, incredibly strong, could fix himself by obtaining new body parts and wanted to live a relatively normal life. This would have been a really interesting story if done in a modern way. It could have gone all philosophical, and yet at the same time withhold the idea of him just trying to help when everyone hates him.

Lookinglass however seems to be going along the Deadpool road. A man on the last bit of life is given a new body with superpowers. Admittedly it’s not exactly like Deadpool but more so than it is like Frankenstein.

I suppose this could explain the name change.

Looking glass is set to debut in 2016 and you can check out the trailer here.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
