We have more horror news to report on today than usual, so we're collecting a number of smaller stories together. Read on to find out about issues with Fox's Frankenstein, Michael Biehn's new grindhouse-style film, a new movie from The Last Exorcism director, and more.

Fox's Frankenstein Shelved?: Shawn Levy was all set to direct a new version of Frankenstein for Fox, but budget issues appear to have put the project on hold:

"Fox recently balked at making Levy’s planned remake of Frankenstein at an $80 million budget, Levy's next picture became an open question. And shortly before that happened, Vaughn had been ready to star in The Insane Laws, a Universal Pictures comedy that would have marked the directing debut of Vaughn’s The Break-Up screenwriter, Jeremy Garelick. But as with Frankenstein, Insane Laws also fell apart over budget issues – largely, we’re told, due to Vaughn’s intransigence about cutting his fee – and so Universal shelved it and put Interns in turnaround as well."

There are a number of Frankenstein projects in development at various studios. We wonder if Fox will continue moving forward with a smaller budget and new director. The script is from Chronicle-writer Max Landis, so Chronicle's success may breath new life into the project. [Source: Vulture]
