Everything queer in ‘Lisa Frankenstein’ according to Diablo Cody

Love never dies and Lisa Frankenstein is resurrecting that notion. Set in the 1989, Lisa Frankenstein follows teen outcast Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton) who resurrects a corpse called the Creature (Cole Sprouse) and strives to turn him into her dream boy by stealing different body parts. Love will make you do crazy things.

But Diablo Cody, the film’s screenwriter and co-producer, believes that we all deserve love and Lisa, in this “coming of rage story,” is no different. Cody, who won the 2008 Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Juno (starring Elliot Page and Michael Cera) is going full ’80s goth with her latest creation. And paired with director Zelda Williams, Lisa Frankenstein was brought to life.

INTO spoke with Cody about what makes Lisa Frankenstein come alive, the queer themes within the film, and how her latest film is connected to Jennifer’s Body.
