WATCHMEN And SIN CITY Star Carla Gugino Joins The Cast Of Diablo Cody's LISA FRANKENSTEIN

Carla Gugino (Sin City, Watchmen) and several other actors have been added to the cast of Diablo Cody and Zelda Williams' horror-comedy, Lisa Frankenstein, which will put a unique spin on the classic tale.

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 Mary Shelley's iconic 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).

Gugino became a fan-favorite thanks to her role as the original Silk Spectre in Zack Snyder's Watchmen, and more recently appeared in Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House and Bly Manor. She also starred in Mike Flanagan's 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's Gerald's Game, garnering acclaim for her lead performance.

Lisa Frankenstein is an '80s-set horror comedy, and "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 roles 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 several comedic adaptations such as Mel Brooks' classic 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.
