Moviegoers, get ready for what could be considered a sequel to "Frankenstein" to hit theaters. Aaron Eckhart will play the story's monster, in the modern day, long after his creator has died, in "I, Frankenstein."

The monster has taken on the surname of the man who built him, dubbing himself Adam Frankenstein, and becomes engulfed in a war between gargoyles and demons who are all out to discover the source of his power.

One look at the picture of Eckhart and you can see where they're going with the character. He's not the big, lumbering green monster with neck bolts that has been classically portrayed. Instead you get a very muscular Eckhart with well-manicured hair, covered in stitches to make him seem pieced together.

The image comes from EW and hits a little over a week before the movie goes to San Diego Comic-Con. Zap2it will be on the scene, bringing full coverage from the "I, Frankenstein" panel at the event. The movie will hit theaters January 24, 2014.
