Haley Joel Osment in Wake the Dead

After an eight year hiatus from the movies, Haley Joel Osment is making a return to acting with three independent projects. The first two are in post-production, with no release set and truly unfortunate titles: Sassy Pants and Montana Amazon. The third has a fine title (Wake the Dead) and should have no trouble finding distribution given the marketability. Variety reports that Osment will play Victor Franklin, a college student who experiments with raising the dead in a present-day retelling of Frankenstein. Wake the Dead is set up at Slasher Films, a production company launched by Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash. Jay Russell (The Water Horse) will direct from a script he co-wrote with James V. Hart (August Rush), based on Steve Niles comic of the same name. Wake the Dead is one of many upcoming projects based on the Frankenstein tale.
