It's one of the most famous novels in English literature: Mary Shelley's Gothic horror Frankenstein.
And STV has learned that a new all-star film production, parts of which were shot at Dunnottar Castle near Stonehaven, will be released in October 2015.
The cast features such leading luminaries of the British A-list acting guild as Glasgow's James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe.
And the director is Bellshill-born Paul McGuigan, who boasts an impressive CV including Lucky Number Slevin, The Acid House and the multi-prize-winning TV series Sherlock.
The movie has a strong Scottish connection with the music score being composed by Craig Armstrong, who has previously worked on such films as Love Actually, World Trade Center and The Incredible Hulk.
In which light, it's hardly surprising expectations are high for this new project.
The staff at Dunnottar Castle were thrilled to be involved in such a lustrous production when the film crew and actors arrived there in March.
They were able to witness at first-hand the meticulous fashion in which a film project gradually comes together.
Wendy Sylvester, the castle's custodian, was one of those who relished the experience.
"The cast and crew have been so good to work with and so respectful of the site," she said.
"We are all looking forward now to seeing how the castle will look when the film comes out."
For the moment, McGuigan is involved in editing the film: an arduous process which means he is spending hours behind closed doors.
But he's clearly delighted at the calibre of the people who have come on board.
Perhaps Radcliffe didn't savour the experience so much, given that look at his underwater scene.
But we're sure this version will prove a monster success when it finally hits the flicks.
