The writers’ strikes held the production from giving fans updates on the film
This horror-comedy film is slated to premiere on February 9, 2024, in the United States. The release date was announced alongside a 20-second teaser on social media on October 14.
“After a set of playfully horrific circumstances bring him back to life, the two embark on a murderous journey to find love, happiness…and a few missing body parts along the way,” states the film’s official logline.
Set in 1989, “Lisa Frankenstein” tells the tale of Lisa (Kathryn Newton), a high school student who struggles with unpopularity. Through a series of unexpected encounters, Lisa reanimates a dashing Victorian corpse (Cole Sprouse). She seizes this unusual opportunity to mold the man of her dreams, with the unwitting corpse serving as her blank canvas.
In her Hollywood debut film, Liza takes on the role of Taffy, Lisa’s stepsister. The film also features a cast that includes Carla Gugino, Joe Chrest, and Henry Eikenbury. Diablo Cody, acclaimed for her work on “Jennifer’s Body” and “Juno,” both wrote and produced the film. Zelda Williams, in her directorial debut, helms “Lisa Frankenstein.”
The production held back from giving info about “Lisa Frankenstein” due to the controversial writers’ strike in the US. The news of Liza’s casting in the film broke out in August 2022, with filming wrapped up by September of the same year.
