Ralph Winter and Terry Botwick have just acquired feature rights to Dean Koontz's Frankenstein which they will develop under their 1019 Entertainment banner. Three titles in Koontz's series have been published, with the fourth scheduled for release in June.

Project places the doctor -- a socially prominent and successful businessman -- and his super-human original creation Deucalion in modern-day New Orleans. The story centers on a pair of street-smart detectives who encounter Deucalion while investigating a murder, leading them to a bizarre array of "engineered" humans.
