Benderspink has optioned a screenplay co-written by Ahmet Zappa entitled Monster X, a horror ensemble in the same vein as Marvel's The Avengers featuring a number of genre icons.

The story features classic creatures such as Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, Mr. Hyde, and seven others, who join forces to take on a massive threat to humanity. The title Monster X is also a nod to the 10 monsters featured in the story, since X is the Roman numeral for 10. Ahmet Zappa co-wrote the original script with an unnamed writer. Benderspink plans to develop the screenplay further before shopping the project to potential buyers.

Ahmet Zappa will also produce alongside Chris Bender, J.C. Spink, and Jake Weiner. Ahmet Zappa produced last year's The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and is currently developing another monster-themed project, Monster Witness Relocation Program, for Disney. No production schedule was given for this monstrous ensemble.

    @rudy well technically mad monster party was the original hotel transylvania, but to me this just sounds like a ripoff of the monster squad

    Well f*ck now we got all these Avengers wanna-bees who are totally missing the point of why the Avengers did so well, which is because they had the individual movies to set up for the team up, oh and also, Hotel Transylvania already did this and it sucked.
