Zelda Williams Wraps Filming on First Feature Film Lisa Frankenstein

That’s a wrap on Lisa Frankenstein, the upcoming movie that serves as the feature film debut for director Zelda Williams. Previously, it had been reported that Williams would be directing the movie after some various acting work and helming the short film Shrimp. It was reported that Williams was set to next take on Lisa Frankenstein for Focus Features with production taking place in New Orleans.

On Monday, Williams shared an image of the cast and crew all together for a photo taken from the set. The filmmaker also announced that filming has been officially wrapped as the post-production process has begun. Williams went on to give her thanks to everyone featured in the photo for the hard work they had collaboratively put into the film together.


“As I dive into post on Lisa Frankenstein, I just wanna say how grateful I am to have worked with every single person in this photo,” Williams said. “To have crossed the (production) finish line on my first film with all of you will remain one of the most joyful adventures of my life. Thank you.”

Williams’ tweet follows a prior reveal that cast member Liza Soberano had also completed filming her scenes on the film, which marks her own feature film debut as an actress. A photograph of her last day on set has been getting shared on social media as well with Soberano alongside Kathryn Newton and Cole Sprouse.
