The Frankenstein Brothers (2010) is an independent romantic comedy that takes place in Denver, Colorado. The plot is centered around two orphan brothers, recently graduated from college, who inherit the Left Hand Brewing Company.
The Frankenstein Brothers began as the brainchild of the sibling writing team Lee Roy and Kane Kunz in 2008. Helmed by Lee Roy Kunz, a writer, actor, and director at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, the project evolved through multiple screenplay drafts until it acquired financing in May 2009. The team drew heavily upon its primary financiers’ powerful Denver network to obtain nearly unprecedented access to local shooting locations and resources at free or vastly discounted rates to achieve extraordinarily high production values.
In spring 2009, Kunz began recruiting a team of top young filmmakers from the USC and greater Los Angeles communities who together represent the next generation of Hollywood filmmakers. Throughout the pre-production process, the team began to assemble a cast of emerging and established young talent, and fleshed out remaining crew positions with a wide range of experienced industry veterans.
Principal photography commenced on September 2, 2009, and wrapped on September 25th. Post- production is tentatively scheduled through February 2010.
The Frankenstein Brothers is a coming of age romantic comedy centered around the lives of twin brothers Luke and Corey Frankenstein in the pivotal months following college graduation. Orphaned at the age of five, the brothers inherited their family brewery and were left in the care of their uncle, a well-meaning but less than ideal paternal figure.
Raised on beer, with the assumption they’re all grown up, Luke and Corey decide it’s time to finish their family beer; a beer their parents started but were never able to finish twenty years ago. But when the idealistic Luke meets a girl whose family shows him the home life he's always wanted, he abandons Corey and their family beer in pursuit of this budding relationship.
Corey, however, refuses to go down without a fight, and the ensuing mayhem that follows pits brother against brother and forces the Colorado wild boys to finally grow up and decide what kind of men they really want to be.
