Deadline|New York is reporting that Summit Entertainment has picked up the film rights to This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel. Subtitled "The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein", the thriller is scheduled to be published this August.

In a nod to Mary Shelley's classic book Frankenstein, This Dark Endeavor acts as prequel. Victor and Konrad are the twin brothers Frankenstein. They are nearly inseparable. Growing up, their lives are filled with imaginary adventures ... until the day their adventures turn all too real. They stumble upon The Dark Library, and secret books of alchemy and ancient remedies are discovered. Their father forbids that they ever enter the room again, but this only piques Victor's curiosity more. When Konrad falls gravely ill, Victor is not be satisfied with the various doctors his parents have called in to help. He is drawn back to The Dark Library where he uncovers an ancient formula for the Elixir of Life. Determination and the unthinkable outcome of losing his brother spur Victor on in the quest for the three ingredients that will save Konrad's life.
