LISA FRANKENSTEIN: Diablo Cody's Horror Comedy Adds Carla Gugino And More To Cast

Diablo Cody's upcoming horror comedy Lisa Frankenstein has added some new cast members, with Carla Gugino, Liza Soberano, Joe Chrest, and Henry Eikenberry signing on for supporting roles...

Diablo Cody (Juno, Jennifer’s Body) is set to return to the horror genre with Focus Features' upcoming Lisa Frankenstein, which is expected to put a unique spin on the classic Mary Shelley tale.

Kathryn Newton (Freaky) and Cole Sprouse (Riverdale) are already on board to play the leads, and they've now been joined by Carla Gugino (Watchmen, Hill House), Liza Soberano (Alone/Together), Joe Chrest (Stranger Things) and Henry Eikenberry (The Crowded Room).

The '80s-set horror comedy "follows an unpopular high schooler who accidentally re-animates a handsome Victorian corpse during a lightning storm and starts to rebuild him into the man of her dreams using the broken tanning bed in her garage."

Chrest is believed to be playing the titular character’s father, Dale, but details on the other characters have not been disclosed.

Cody penned the script for Lisa Frankenstein, which will mark the feature directorial debut of Zelda Williams.

We've seen quite a few takes on Frankenstein over the years - including comedic adaptations like Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein - but Cody has proven adept at delivering clever scripts with scares and laughs, so we're looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us here.
