Dean Koontz’s bestselling Frankenstein series is set to become a movie franchise, Variety reports. The modern take on the classic story centers on a prominent New Orleans businessman who creates the super-human Deucalion. When two detectives discover Deucalion while trying to solve a murder, it leads them to an entire group of “engineered humans.” The fourth book of Koontz’s series will be published in June, with fifth and sixth books scheduled in 2011 and 2012.
